Coheed and Cambria Movie
2012-07-18 by Adam Amanse | 79 Comments

Progressive Rock outfit Coheed and Cambria are in the works of making their album concept, The Amory Wars, into a feature-length live action film with Mark Wahlberg.

The Sci-Fi adventure takes place in a star-system known as "Heaven's Fence," and is the sole concept behind all of Coheed and Cambria's albums. Frontman Claudio Sanchez says that this is "a dream starting to come true."

The interview that discusses this can be found here:

Err... Nah, really, as much as I love Coheed and will probably see this, they need to start keeping it to the albums. Comics and novels were enough. Movies are a little too far.

I don't care if it sucks really really horribly I'll still love it because Coheed and Cambria.

It would take a lot to dis-associate myself with their ridiculously great albums.

I figure that this will probably tank because
1. Not enough movie goers will know about the complex 5 album story from some alt-prog band
2. it will probably be bad

But it will be neat to finally delve into this story because I've been curious but not enough to actually care about buying the comics

I'd be surprised if it's not direct to DVD. I mean, shit, Bruce Dickinson's movie was direct to DVD.

a. why do moviegoers need to know the story going in? Thats what movie trailers are for...
b. its a four album story

As much as you, me, and everybody else wants this to rock, for reasons stated above this will probably tank at the box office even though it might actually be a good movie.

I'm totally seeing it regardless though...

They don't need to mention Coheed in the marketing at all
It will have the same odds as any other sci fi flick at the box office, if it gets good reviews it will probably do well if the budget is modest

they're primarily television producers, except for that contraband movie i believe, and some upcoming stuff... regardless, nobody knows anything about how the movie is going to turn out because nobody knows anybody who is working on it.

until somebody is tapped to write the script all bets are off...

what is extremely cool is that this grandiose project that claudio has kept up with has caught the attention from outside of the music industry's commercial and critical black hole.

it has been a long time since someone made a space opera. also the story is huge and as the first movie the people in charge of this should try to make a self-contained story and not bank on a trilogy right away.

so what album could make a good movie?

btw i love your avatar trebor.

I'll buy the soundtrack if it's a Coheed and the Funky Bunch fusion band with Mark Wahlberg in his underwear on the cover.

I've only read SSTB in full, but I feel that would make a pretty great movie. And if they market this well enough it being associated with a 5 part progressive rock concept albums series is not going to matter to audiences.

K so I don't want to be the guy who comes in and shits on someone's parade, but The Amory Wars is quite mediocre as a comic series/sci-fi tale thingummy. It's honestly one of the most one-dimensional things I've ever read. I'm really interested to know which studio picked it up and the upcoming screenwriters.

With enough funding could be cool. If they don't entirely play it off as just a Coheed thing you might get a lot of interest from people who like sci-fi and cool shit but most likely it won't do that well. Having Mark Wahlberg involved just makes it interesting. If they get a few more names in there it may have a chance depending on who directs and whatnot.

Never expected them to take it this far, apparently Wahlberg is huge fan of the band, I'm sure he wouldn't mess this up. I'm guessing this film is going to have a Star Wars meets Fifth Element feel, I don't think it's going to be that serious, but should be an enjoyable and fun watch nonetheless. I wonder if they're having the whole series into one film, or make an actual saga?

I love the concept. I agree that it isn't the most original one, but it's an engaging one nonetheless. I really hope they have good people backing them on this one, but being the fanboy that I am I'll probably love the movie no matter what happens.
