While there's no word on whether the full-length documentary will still be titled 'Kinkdom Come,' as Temple hinted in a 2007 Q&A with the Generalist, it wouldn't be the first time the filmmaker worked with the Kinks. As an in-demand music video director in the 1980s, Temple lensed clips for the band's 1983 hits 'Come Dancing' and 'Don't Forget to Dance.'
As for an actual band reunion, Davies tells the Independent it isn't likely. Although he still plays with drummer Mick Avory and has mended fences with his guitarist/brother Dave, who suffered a stroke in 2004, there are no plans to return to the group, even though he misses the band.
"I gotta tell you -- I miss the Kinks," he says. "I heard 'Lola' on the radio a few months back, and I was amazed how strong the intro was. With the other, fuzz-guitar-driven stuff I could always get that energy and power from my brother Dave. Jimmy Page and Eric [Clapton] are great technical players, but you wouldn't have got that from them."
