By | Published on Tuesday 17 August 2010

A new film depicting the life of Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson, who drowned in 1983, is currently in pre-production, according to WENN. Director Randall Miller and writer Jody Savin are reportedly working with the Wilson family on the project, which is set for release next year to coincide with the Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary.

Miller said: “Dennis was a pained and tortured soul, yet brilliant and loved dearly by so many who knew him. This film has the makings of a tour-de-force performance in the hands of the right actor. As a director, I search for stories that expose the soul of a character in new territories that excite me as a filmmaker”.
