Mat Whitecross has admitted in an interview to NME that Liam Gallagher has not closed the door on a sequel to his recently released docu-drama about legendary Brit-pop band Oasis.
Speaking to the music and entertainment magazine, Whitecross confirmed that the band had not totally ruled out on the possibility of a sequel saying: ‘It’s just something that Liam said off the cuff. I remember when he came in for the interviews, he said, ‘why we stopping here? I’m enjoying it lets keep going!’ If they were up for it I would love that.’ He did however, admit there was some problems with developing Supersonic, stating, ‘Something I found challenging and engaging about trying to do just two and a half years was even then we felt we’d bitten off more then we can chew. In some ways, I guess the danger is that as a band becomes bigger, the stories become better known. As a lifelong fan though, I feel there’s definitely another film in there.’
Whitecross was also quizzed on the possibility of making another band documentary featuring Morrissey and Johnny Marr, a topic on which he was also keen on. Whitecross commented, ‘I think that might be the fight that would kill me… If they’re up for doing a film then yeah. We know Johnny’s manager, he’s a good friend of ours so maybe I’ll try and get on the phone with him one day and see how it goes.’
