Damon Albarn says an animated Gorillaz movie is in the works

While working on 'Song Machine' season two

Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn has revealed that an animated movie about the band is in the works.

In an interview on RADIO.COM’s New Arrivals, Albarn said that a script is being written for an animated film.

“We signed contracts, we’ve begun scripts and stuff,” Albarn explains. “Making an animated film that’s kind of abstract is quite a big risk for a movie studio because they’re very expensive. If you’re telling a slightly obtuse, weird story, that only sometimes makes any sense, it’s quite difficult.”

While confirming the film, Albarn also teased that they’re working on the second season of Song Machine. “Well, we are supposed to be making a film while we’re doing season two,” Albarn explains.
