A biopic on the Beach Boys late co-founder Dennis Wilson is currently in pre-production. The film, "The Drummer", will star Aaron Eckhart as Wilson during the last six years of the Beach Boy's life. The film will focus on Wilson's main solo era of 1975 to 1978 and will cover his critically acclaimed 1977 solo album "Pacific Ocean Blue". While the film has been promoted as the definitive look at Wilson's life, the movie omits Wilson's relationship with Charles Manson and his dependency on cocaine and alcohol which contributed to his premature death.

Here is Dennis Wilson and the Beach Boys performing "Do You Wanna Dance" on Shindig! in 1965:
