Flaming Lips Plan New Film

No strangers to the weird and occult, The Flaming Lips are planning another film- a follow-up to their 2008 flick Christmas on Mars.

According to Billboard, frontman Wayne Coyne plans to film the movie in their hometown of Oklahoma City. He reveals, "My only goal was that I didn’t have to build space station-looking sets every time I wanted to have someone say something, only because I built those sets myself every time we shot something for Christmas on Mars over the seven years we took to make it. This one is set in someone’s house and in a back yard and in a slaughterhouse; all those are available to me right here, so I don’t have to build everything this time."

This go-around, expect star power not limited to the lips. "I’m gonna try to get real actors, too, celebrities to show up and have fun with us for a couple of nights. I’m in the process of begging Justin Timberlake to be part of it; if I’m lucky I’ll be able to wear him down in another year."

Coyne says that he’s beginning work on the film, and that he and bandmate Steven Drozd have started work on the film’s music. But this one could also take a while: "Because I get to do it with people I love and it’s my art, I don’t care how long it takes."
