Maybe it was all of the craziness surrounding the Oscars, or maybe he just couldn't hold it in anymore. Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyne has announced that he's going to make another movie.

It won't be a crazy space-tacular adventure this time, though; Wayne's tired of being slowed down by set-building. He'd also like to have some dialogue. Nice. The emergence of of Wayne Coyne as a Martin Scorcese-archetype! He's growing as a filmmaker, unchallenged by doing the same old thing all over again.

"My only goal was that I didn't have to build space station-looking sets every time I wanted to have someone say something," Coyne notes, "only because I built those sets myself every time we shot something for 'Christmas on Mars' over the seven years we took to make it. This one is set in someone's house and in a back yard and in a slaughterhouse; all those are available to me right here, so I don't have to build everything this time," he said when speaking to Billboard.

"I'm gonna try to get real actors, too, celebrities to show up and have fun with us for a couple of nights. I'm in the process of begging Justin Timberlake to be part of it; if I'm lucky I'll be able to wear him down in another year."

In the mean time, you can check out the theatrics on the upcoming Flaming Lips tour.
