Super-ace geek rockers Weezer - what is it with these guys dissing my girl, anyway? - have been lined up to appear as The Velvet Underground in a forthcoming film based on the life of Edie Sedgewick, entitled Factory Girl.
(No, really, that title must've taken years to arrive at, if not entire decades... for fuck's sake...)
Lou Reed, former frontman of the Velvets, has reportedly called the film's script "one of the most disgusting, foul things I've seen - by any illiterate retard - in a long time". This information comes to you courtesy of Playlouder, by the way.
Weezer have covered 'Heroin' for the movie, but they're not really on drugs, whatever that awful song from Make Believe said...
Edie Sedgewick, case you're wondering, was an associate of Andy Warhol back in the 1960s. The pair eventually fell out, and Sedgewick turned her back on Warhol's Factory complex. She's, like, dead now. Like Chris Penn. And The Queen Mum.
