LONDON (AP) – Bruce Springsteen rarely gives his consent to his music being used in films, so the makers of the new movie “Blinded by the Light” knew they had to find a different motivation for him.
Co-writer Sarfraz Manzoor says Springsteen has “more money than God,” so they could not buy his approval. Manzoor says he figured Springsteen had to trust in the story and believe that his music was being cared for.
Co-writer and director Gurinder Chadha says Springsteen saw the film and thanked her for taking care of him so beautifully. She says he told her not to change a thing.
“Blinded by the Light” hits theaters tomorrow.
