    Default Van Halen Left DLR Over His 1985 Movie Deal

    The real way to understand 1985 is that Van Halen left DLR.

    The Rolling Stones and Keith Richards did not leave Mick Jagger when he was doing films around 1970 (the height of their popularity). They were wise and smart.

    Van Halen and EVH?

    Not.

    But Mick tried very hard to leave The Stones until he came back to reality.

    Jesus, if that script landed in front of an agent or producer it'd be rejected instantly based on the terrible formatting alone. It's almost unreadable. Is that legit? I find it hard to believe that DLR never thought to ask anyone, hey, how are these things supposed to look?

    Just read the first couple of pages , out of morbid curiosity ...
    OMFG , what a shit sandwich that was !

    I can't believe Dave seriously considered that as a viable career move . And left VH to pursue it ?
    Me thinks that yes , indeed , cocaine is a helluva drug .

    Makes the writing on VH III seem like the Rosetta Stone !

    Dave leaving VH was probably the worst career move in the history of rock music.
    It would be interesting to see how things would have gone had Dave remained in VH.

    You are right. I read a few pages and thought it was very sophomoric and amateuristic. It read (and looked) like the writer's first attempt at a screenplay.

    I agree. I think this is a fake - maybe someone put DLR's name on a bad screenplay. A couple of red flags: Would DLR, seriously, in 1985, name two characters Ed and Dave? And the formatting is so far off - there's not a chance in hell DLR would get to a final draft without someone in the movie biz seeing it and saying, "Um, Dave, this isn't how movie scripts are formatted."

    Could he possibly start more threads about shit we already know?

    I wonder if he knows that Ed started out playing drums.

    Van Halen left Dave so you could start a thread about it 30 years later EC. They were wise and smart. Lucky us.

    I think the script was funny as hell. A movie version of his music videos. Lots of great I one-liners. It wasn't supposed to be a quality film.

    Zoolander was a success:

    "Zoolander received generally positive reviews from critics."

    Budget $28 million

    Box office $60.7 million

    They more than doubled their money.

    Like with Dave and Pete's script, you might lack the imagination required to envision the final whole of Zoolander from Zoolander's printed screenplay.

    Zoolander's script:

    http://www.script-o-rama.com/movie_s...n-stiller.html

    Zoolander realized:



    Dave's film would have been a huge hit.

    DLR would have done the movie and then Van Halen. Mick Jagger did his films and then the Rolling Stones. VH and EVH left Dave. The Rolling Stones and Keith Richards did not leave Mick Jagger, and then insert Sammy Hagar and Wolf in the Rolling Stones.

    Van Halen leaving Dave in the 80s was the worst career move in the history of rock music.

    That scene sounds hilarious and brilliant.

    You understand that this is comedy and that Dave was steeped in film history?

    Comedy is supposed to be sophomoric. A writer's first screenplay is often his best or one of his best.
