Rick Astley: The Musical
2009-02-02 by Nick Butler EMERITUS | 19 Comments
Seems like Hollywood is about to get RickRoll'd.

Astley has revealed that he has finishing writing a musical based around his songs, and is currently touting it in the film industry. "My wife's now a movie producer so I read a lot of scripts and I'm really passionate about films", he explained. "One day I thought, 'Well, why don't I write one?' And it turned into a musical - but not for the stage. It's dominated by the songs I've written - they tell the stories - so I hooked up with a guy in California and we wrote the script together. We're at the point of speaking to a few different agents and getting people to read. I'm not fooling myself - nothing may come of it and I totally understand that, but as a process I have loved it".

If commissioned, it would represent a major step for Astley, who has largely shied away from the public eye since the peak of his fame in the 1980s.

Apparently there was some dude demonstrating a load of plasma screens in some building somewhere who started playing Never Gonna Give You Up, thus giving him the biggest Rick Roll ever.

Macy's day parade also had Rick personally sing... so.. that one wins. So far, Rick Astley is responsible for the biggest rickroll ever.

I'm talking a national scale rick-roll... perhaps a breaking news report that tells everyone about a new deadly disease and tells them to watch the news at a certain time, where they play the video. Crap idea, I know, but something like that.
