A film about the life of Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson, who tragically drowned in Marina Del Rey in 1983, is reportedly in pre-production. The filmmakers are reportedly working with the cooperation of Wilson's family and there are already plans to release the film sometime in 2011.
Wilson's daughter Jennifer will also serve in a producer capacity and the film is expected to incorporate music from Wilson's 1977 solo disc, Pacific Ocean Blue, as well as previously unreleased tracks by the late performer, plus music from the Beach Boys. The movie's release is expected to coincide with the Beach Boys' 50th anniversary next year; there are rumors of a reunion surrounding the anniversary so it's a busy time for the band and its legacies.
