Radar Pictures, which has given us the Jumanji and Riddick franchises, has optioned the title and lyrics of “Karn Evil 9,” the sprawling concept suite on ELP’s Brain Salad Surgery, for a movie (other options, like a TV series or video game, are also on the table). “Remember when the Doors had a huge comeback?” says Radar executive Michael Napoliello. “You couldn’t go anywhere without seeing them. It enabled the rest of the band to get back out there and be mentors and inspirations.” Recalling the time when the dead Morrison made the cover of RS and was revived onscreen by Oliver Stone, Napoliello adds, “We hope this is a Jim Morrison moment for the band.”
Keith Emerson, Jim Morrison, the names almost sound the same! What could go wrong?
Also, love this juxtaposition of quotes from Palmer:
We managed to pick up that tag ‘pretentious’ and it stayed with us, and it did more harm than good.
What we did back then was just laying down the blueprint for the future.
