Yes, I'm sure the vast majority are aware that one is being made, but I just found out some cool new infor about it, I did a search and nothing came up about this so hopefully everyone doesnt already know.

For awhile nothing was heard about the movie, tentatively titled "Mr. Tambourine Man" last I heard. It is being made by Jason's Friend Matt Schulze, who was originally set to play him in the movie. After not hearing about it for so long I was afraid it may have been scrapped, but then again, most people assumed this was going to be a relatively low budget thing anyway, and perhaps there just wasnt enough interest to generate the proper funds.

But today I went to look at Jason's myspace update, and lo and behold, the latest update was about the movie http://www.jasonbecker.com/ so it looks like it's back on track, w00t! and better yet, it says two possible actors to now play Jason (since Shulze is now too old) are Orlando Bloom and Ashton Kutcher, this may be hitting theaters yet!

Anyway, this just kind of renewed my interest in this awesome project as I am a big Becker fan; hopin this movie kicks ass.

INO, I can't wait for the movie.

I didn't really think it would get big names like Ashton Kutcher or Orlando Bloom to do the part though, tbh, those two actors imo don't quite cut it to play Jason Becker... At all...

i think they should get someone who actually plays guitar to play Jason Becker

Those two actors would suck. The best ones are always the young unknowns who audition.

Agreed, they better get somebody who can at least play a bit of guitar, I don't want to see continual scenes of somebodys face when it comes to a part where music is going... That said, nomatter who they get to play the part, I'll still see it and buy it, simply for Jason Becker, that is if any of the profits go to either his family or an ALS charity.

Yea, but like, Marty Friedman's gone mad and thinks he's like so good on guitar that he's ascended to the level of technique known as "Asian", it's like above God, they really just keep him in the country because he's mildly amusing and plays some funky shit on occasion...

I heard of the Rhoads movie but not Becker...
There is a Rhoads movie in the works? Can you show me a link or something for some info. I really doubt that orlando bloom will do the jason becker movie. He just announced that he will stop acting for awhile.

I reckon he might be in the movie, but probably wouldnt even play himself.

I think two unknowns. With mad 80's hair hahahahaha. Although I wouldn't mind seeing some bigger names as other actors.

Yeah I dunno how much Ashton or Orlando are really like Jason, but big name actors like this possibly being in the movie means much more publicity, and I'm just thankful for that.
