HOLY SHIT! Can they REALLY be getting around to THIS Sequel 37 YEARS later?


Phil Daniels and Toyah Wilcox will return for the sequel

A sequel to iconic British movie Quadrophenia is currently being made, 37 years after the original was released.

The sequel to the cult film, which was released in 1979, is expected to see the return of original cast members Phil Daniels and singer Toyah Wilcox – and will shoot this summer.

The iconic 1979 adaptation of The Who’s eponymous album focused on the infamous violent clashes between Mods and Rockers on Brighton Beach in the 1960’s, and it’s expected that the sequel will catch up with the characters at a later stage in their lives.

The follow-up is based on the book To Be Someone by Peter Meadow, and will be directed by Ray Burdis, who previously produced The Krays.

Describing the sequel, Toyah Wilcox, who played the role of Monkey in the original, said:

“Quadrophenia was really zeitgeist and it’s never really gone away, as every new generation connects with it.

“No-one expected that to happen – it grabbed teenage angst by the balls and never let go. None of us realised the impact it would have at the time – we were all just desperate to out do each other.

“The natural journey for my character, nearly 40 years on, has seen her become a sexual predator, working in the sex industry as a madam. She’s married to one of the other main characters and they’re swingers.”

The sequel is expected to be released next year.
