James Gunn's colour ban

  James Gunn's colour ban James Gunn "banned" the colour purple from 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' because the hue had been used so much in the first film.The 46-year-old director wanted the sequel to be very visual but deliberately tried to stay away from particular hues he felt had been used a lot in his original movie in order to give the new film a style of its own.

Their story is the untold story of all those big bands of the 1960s. The story of legendary British rock band The Kinks is coming to the big screen - a movie about the group's rise to fame is in the works . The film, titled You Really Got Me, will be directed by Julien Temple

No one has been cast in the film yet, and it is not a foregone conclusion that John Dagleish and George Maguire, who have won awards for their portrayal of the Davies brothers in 'Sunny Afternoon' will reprise their roles on the big screen.

Ray and Dave founded the band in 1963 and split in 1996.

However, the brothers performed together for the first time in almost 20 years in 2015, when Ray joined Dave on stage in London for a performance of 'You Really Got Me'.

The band has had a number of different line-ups over the years but the siblings have featured in each one.

The Kinks' classic line-up featured Mick on drums and the late Pete on bass.

Pete was replaced by John Dalton in 1969 while Bob Henrit took over as sticksman in 1984.
