Joel Schumacher has had a rough go of it lately. His most recent film, Twelve, seems unlikely to crack either $1 million at the box office (currently $183,000 domestic after a couple hundred theaters abandoned it this week), or double digits at Rotten Tomatoes (a single positive review for 4%; yikes). Of course, nothing soothes the soul like the sultry sounds of Mr. Barry White.
According to Pajiba, Schumacher has The Barry White Story lined up as his next project — but it’s not a biopic. Instead, it’s about (get this) “the ghost of Barry White teaching some loser kid how to channel him to get a girl.” That actually sounds like one of those ideas that’s so crazy that it plays on screen. I don’t know that Schumacher is the man for the job, but I can’t imagine Story will be completely devoid of entertainment value. In some form. Let’s see if it ever gets past the idea stage.
