Subterranea : The Movie
published on: Monday, 16 July 2012.
A team of American filmmakers are currently in the process of transforming IQ's legendary 'Subterranea' album into a feature length film.
Birdman films have been working with the concept album for over a year adapting it into a screenplay and are now ready to officially launch the news that production of the film is scheduled to begin in 2013. The project has just entered the pre-production phase and fund raising has begun.
Subterranea-Movie.com is the film's official website. The site will become increasingly interactive as the project gets closer to it's release, so be sure to check it out often. Watch the counters for hidden features to become live and more of the 'code' to be revealed. The site will also contain a blog where day to day news on the project will be shared.
IQ will also be collaborating with the filmmakers in the post production process creating the score for the movie. There will be an infusion of existing themes from the album with brand new material to accompany the film.
A message from the film's writer/director:
“As a huge fan of IQ, I am honored and thrilled to be working on this project in collaboration with the band. I want to make sure the IQ community is as excited about the film as I am. Our film making team and I hope that our enthusiasm and vision for the film will bring to life the already stimulating and poignant images the music has created in all of our minds and hearts as fans. We look forward to bringing you more updates and for your help in the long road of movie making ahead.
