Wayne Coyne About To Get Even More Chatty Than Usual
Good news, Studio 60 fan! According to Entertainment Weekly, Aaron Sorkin will be writing the upcoming musical adaptation of the Flaming Lips’ Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots:
Sorkin’s reps confirmed on Tuesday (March 20) that the West Wing creator has officially signed on to write the musical’s script. ”Maybe that means they’ll need to build a stage with lots of hallways on it,” joked [Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne] of Sorkin’s fondness for walking-and-talking characters. ”It will be a giant tube that’s always moving!”
And always annoying! In fact, we’ve obtained a page of dialogue from Sorkin’s upcoming opus, and we’re already excited:
CHARACTER 1: So there’s this girl, Yoshimi.
CHARACTER 2: Yoshimi?
CHARACTER 1: Yoshimi.
CHARACTER 2: Ok, so this girl Yoshimi…
CHARACTER 1: She has to battle these pink robots.
CHARACTER 2: Wait–she has to battle robots?
CHARACTER 1: Yes, robots.
CHARACTER 2: Pink robots?
CHARACTER 1: Yes.
CHARACTER 2: Okay.
CHARACTER 1: Good.
CHARACTER 2: Bush is a dick.
See you in 2010 or so!
