    Damon Albarn has confirmed that there will be no more Gorillaz studio albums. The prolific songwriter behind the cartoon band (as well as the Good, the Bad & the Queen and Blur) told BBC Radio 2 that a feature film project is in the works, but there is no plan for a follow-up to 2005's Demon Days.

    "We're trying to make a film next, starting in September hopefully," Albarn said. "It will be a film score. There won't be another pop record." Filmmaker Terry Gilliam (12 Monkeys, Brazil) is reportedly linked to the project.
