Quadrophenia spin-off in the pipeline with original cast and Who legend helping production

























Escaping: Buddy and Doley

Quadrophenia fans around the world are set to ride their scooters triumphantly as the classic film is getting a spin-off.

Original cast-members are coming together in a kickstarter campaign to have a film funded with strong cultural references to the original.

The original movie, made in 1979 captured the spirit of the Mods vs Rockers battles of the time set to an incredible soundtrack.

It was based on the 1973 rock opera of the same name by The Who. It starred Phil Daniels as Jimmy, a young 1960s London-based Mod who escapes from his dead-end job as a mailroom boy by dancing, partying, taking amphetamines, riding his scooter and brawling with the motorcycle-riding Rockers.

The movie 'Being' stars original Quadrophenia star Mark Wingett (Carver, The Bill) as Doley.

One of the rewards for backers of new spin-off film 'Being' is a Golden Prince sculpture from the Godfather of Pop Art Sir Peter Blake documentary, previously owned by Who legend Pete Townshend.

It tells the story of a young boy, Buddy who is being bullied at school by classmates who really don't understand him.

He has to care for his Mum, Margaret by himself as she has Multiple Sclerosis.

We see Buddy wrestle with his responsibilities at home, and his Mum Margaret's daily stress trying to balance her own care needs living with a degenerative illness, and giving her son the childhood she would like him to have.

Buddy and his Mum find their escape in a world of sixties music. They share a love of mod bands like The Who.

One day Buddy meets an out of work actor, Doley and they become great friends.

Director Devlin Crow has captured the spirit of the original with reproduction of the mopeds and has other original cast members including and Trevor Laird.

Devlin's own wife Kennedy is living with Multiple Sclerosis, and Devlin is her carer.
