Chuck Mosley

A new movie about acclaimed singer Chuck Mosley is coming! 

On February 6, director and musician Drew Fortier announced his next film project; a documentary about the Faith No More/Bad Brains/Cement/Primitive Race member Chuck Mosley. The film itself was initially conceived as a narrative on the legendary singer and musician’s then burgeoning comeback. Chuck originally agreed to the project through a typically irreverent voicemail.

Fortier, known from the bands Bang Tango and Zen From Mars, will return to a familiar spot. He is going back behind the camera to direct the documentary. The director also helmed 2015’s Attack of Life: The Bang Tango Movie.  When he was playing the guitar for Chuck Mosley, at a handful of shows in 2017, they discussed the framework of a documentary. They decided that it should be about the singer and songwriter’s life and his re-emergence on the scene.

Fortier stated, “I am incredibly excited to tell Chuck’s story. I believe everyone will be able to get something positive out of the finished project of what will be Chuck’s film.”

Chuck’s story

Before his unexpected death on November 9th 2017, Mosley left a voicemail for Drew. It touchingly said “I’ve decided to go ahead with the video … I mean, not the video, but the documentary on this one, Chuck Mosley. He seems like a pretty expansive and explosive character. I think he would be perfect for the part of himself …”

The film will be produced by Chuck’s longtime friend/bandmate/babysitter, Douglas Esper, who is also working on a book about their time. He added, “In supporting Drew I hope to give people a glimpse into the beautiful and frustrating mind of one of the most unique, self proclaimed ‘Rock Satellites,’ of all time.”

The team recently launched a Facebook page concerning the project, and fans can also contact to hear more. They are eager to hear from fans, family, friends and anyone else willing to share stories, photos, audio and video of Chuck Mosley.
