(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — "This is not a good town for psychedelic drugs," said Hunter Thompson, about Las Vegas, but is it a good town for the Doors? We might be about to find out.
A full-court media press is on. Producer Dick Wolf, of "Law & Order" Fame will be producing a full-length, theater-release documentary on The Doors, with full collaboration from all the surviving members. There will also be a flurry of related product support as well; coffee table books, poetry albums and re-releases from the Doors catalogue, all marking the 40th anniversary of the Doors first album release.
But there could be more. According the LA Times, Doors manager Jeff Jampol said that the remaining Doors and Jim Morrison's estate have been in negotiations for a standing Doors show to premier in 2008. The show, which would be featured in a purpose-built theater has yet to have the details worked out, but the deal is reportedly worth "tens of millions of dollars" and high tech wizardry such as laser holograms of the performers and theater seats individually wired for sound.
"We've got something very special in the works…. We're creating something, but we're not sure what it's called," Jampol told the LA Times. "The overarching watch-phrase is we want to do something that speaks about the ethos and vibe and feeling and meaning of the Doors: dark, edgy, dangerous, questioning authority, otherworldly." — CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
