    The cult classic film Quadrophenia, based on the Who's album of the same name is getting a sequel that will begin filming this summer, however, it appears The Who will have absolutely nothing to do with it. Manager Bill Curbishley released this statement:

    "Quadrophenia has an enduring appeal and will forever be the definitive mod film, Quadrophenia is a significant and influential film based on The Who's music, not some Carry On franchise. Any follow-up to this film could only be made by the authors of the original and would need to be worthy of the name. This karaoke sequel announced recently in the press would be totally ridiculous." [ VIA The Hollywood Reporter]

    Curbishley added that the new film wouldn't star Sting or Winstone or feature any words or music from The Who, and described it as a "blatant attempt to cash in" on the original's popularity. Directed by Ray Burdis, the sequel is planned to be an adaption of the 2011 novel "To Be Someone," by Peter Meadows. It picks up the Quadrophenia story forty years later with protagonist Jimmy Cooper working as a cocaine-smuggling gangster. Phil Daniels, who portrayed Cooper in the original film has signed on to reprise his role, Mark Wingett, Trevor Laird and Toyah Willcox will also be returning.

    That being said, we leave with you with this fantastic clip from the original film:
