News: Unconfirmed Love Reign O'er Me/Tour/DVD News...

Decide for yourself how reliable it is, but a post on the Big Day Out forums reads:

Seattle rockers Pearl Jam have recorded a rousing cover of The Who’s “Love, Reign O’er Me” which will feature as the title track for Adam Sandler’s new film.
Producers originally asked Sandler to record the cover himself, but when approached he immediately expressed that “there is a bunch of guys who will do it better than anyone”.
An enthusiastic Eddie Vedder was rumored to have been in the studio recording vocals of the Who classic just a few hours after being asked to participate.
The film, aptly titled “Reign Over Me”, tells the tale of an emotionally sidetracked individual finding hope through a rekindled high-school friendship. “Reign Over Me” opens in March.

Still with Pearl Jam, and their film crew are beginning the arduous task of compiling a whopping 3-DVD set covering their recently completed 2006 World Tour. Members of the film crew stated that they had “to make the decisions on what to include, but we have complete edited video of every single show of the tour at our fingertips, from North America, Europe, Australia, and Hawaii”. Management would not shed any light on the band’s specific touring plans for 2007, but revealed that “they will pop up here and there”. The DVD set will be released in mid-2007.

I'm a bit sceptical about the DVD myself, especially seeing as this seems to be a seperate project from the Danny Clinch Italian Tour DVD, but i guess we'll see...
