Using Richard's input would be the key to it’s success or failure, depending on what he lets a director do.
I’d say that would be it’s failure. He would allow virtually zero directorial control over the film, not to mention the script, casting, score...if a big budget film is ever going to happen, it needs to be handled by a top team of the calibre that have produced other such movies.

Saw this in the news today. Another famous singer biopic due for release in September. A Star Is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman, and now Judy. It seems logical that Karen would be seriously considered for such a project if this trend continues;

Here's hoping!

I'm looking forward to seeing Rocketman. If it's anything like Bohemian Rhapsody, it'll be great!

This actually goes under the category "Anyone heard this?" but since I don't know where else to put it, I'll post it here. EP82: Karen Tongson on The Carpenters' "A Song For You" (1972) | Maximum Fun

Karen Tongson appeared in the Heat Rocks podcast, where they discussed the A Song for You album. Interesting stuff.
I enjoyed this! Thankyou for posting it.

It's always interesting to hear what lesser fans think of K & R. While I disagree on their bias assesment of the 'A Song For You' track and the frequent veering off into idea's of 'whiteness' - I thought they raised some interesting points. And it's always nice to hear Karen's voice get more love.
