So I started a Phil Ochs group on facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=6276376450 ) and I've been compiling news about him. I thought the most interesting subject is about whether or not there will be a movie about him one day. The news lately has either been uncertain or just plain not good. A Phil Ochs documentary is in the works however.
April 10, 2008 Steven Spielberg is in the works of making a film called "The Trial Of The Chicago 7" about the events of the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago, Illinois. It is rumored that Will Smith and Kevin Spacey is on board, as well as many other well-known actors. Let's hope a Phil Ochs character is included.
