A Roy Orbison biopic is in the works. It’ll be the first movie about the iconic singer that’s estate-authorized. “The Big O: Roy Orbison” is expected in theaters in 2018. Alex Orbison says, “My dad’s story is a fantastic journey. He was so inspiring as a person because, after everything he had been through, good and bad, he still had a positive outlook on life, and was kind and wonderful. The movie will mirror a Roy Orbison song: having triumph and tragedy, sometimes losing the girl and sometimes getting the girl, and ending on a high note. Our father’s life story has an undeniably cinematic quality to it.” The movie will be produced by Marty Katz.
