If any Manilow haters are wondering who's behind such an idea, the answer might be surprising -- the film is being made by the production companies of Tom Hanks and R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe. Let's see people knock Stipe and Hanks when 'Copacabana' becomes a hit again and a whole new generation of fans start gleefully singing the tale of Lola the showgirl.
Manilow himself will reportedly have a cameo in the film, which will feature his back catalogue and be told along the lines of 'Love Actually.' The story is about a group of Manilow fans who come to Vegas -- where he's been headlining and selling out since 2005 -- to see the singer perform and have several romantic adventures to the likes of 'Weekend in New England,' 'Can't Smile Without You' and 'Looks Like We Made It,' songs tailor-made for a romantic comedy.
The film has yet to be titled, but we'd love to hear your suggestions.
