LEGENDARY British rockers Status Quo will shoot their first full-length feature film in Fiji this month.

Titled Bula Quo the 90-minute action flick will feature band members Francis Rossi and Rick Parfitt along with American actor, comedian and singer Jon Lovitz ù who starred in The Wedding Singer and British actors Craig Fairbrass and Laura Aikman.

A statement released to The Fiji Times by the band's management, Chris Hewlett, added the action movie will be directed by multi award winner Stuart Saint Paul ù best known for his work on the Aliens movie series, Batman and three James Bond flicks.

"The one thing Quo fans know is to expect the unexpected. Of course, Rick and I have already acted in Coronation Street, one of the biggest TV shows on the planet, so this should be no trouble at all," said lead guitarist and vocalist Francis Rossi.

Rhythm guitarist and singer Rick Parfitt conveyed excitement at shooting their first full-length movie away from the cold.

"Once I found out that we weren't going to be shooting anywhere cold, I was all for it.

"This is an amazing chance for us to do something new and we're all really excited," he said.

Status Quo has recorded more than 60 chart hits in the UK, with 22 reaching the UK top 20.
