    I don't need to see VH on the big screen. Would just be cheesy. Nobody respectable in Hollywood would be interested. All we would do is whine about the guy who played Ed. Hair not right. He's not moving like Ed. Can tell he's not a guitar player. That's not a '78 shirt Ed wore...that's a '79 shirt. All the guitar minutiae they didn't get right. The nerd details.

    Then there would be the OTT Roth portrayal. Mike character barely in any scenes Yada Yada.

    Fuck that.

    The tribute debate we all had. Imagine that but on steroids over a biopic.

    I figure if Netflix is making a movie about Dokken one about VH isn't too far fetched. All the streaming services need content and will latch onto pretty much anything these days.

    Origins is the way to go.
    Everything after seems so bizarre when you learn the roots of VH, which adds more to the mystique. (Good film)

    I can see studios actually wanting to do it, if its well written.

    I can't see it getting past the actual Van Halen camp.

    The Queen movie was named Bohemian Rhapsody. The VH movie should be named Jump, not VH Rising.
    It's like Hollywood would never do an AC/DC movie without Back in Black. Fans would be like "but Bon Scott was so cool!!!" Yes, but the bean counters know Back In Black sold 40 Million copies.

    They really need to release some proshot footage, every band ever has proshot footage, AC/DC, The Who, Zepplin, ZZ top.

    Real archival footage would be so much better than some drama filled biopic.
