Daniels, who played angst-ridden Mod Jimmy Cooper in the 1979 hit, was rumoured to be on board with the new film, titled To Be Someone, but has now shut down any involvement.
Speaking to the Standard he said: “It’s not happening with me, not what’s being proposed at the moment.”
But Daniels said he wouldn’t rule out a return to the character if producer Bill Curbishley wanted to work on a follow-up.
“Bill Curbishley if you’re out there and you really want to do it, let’s do it,” he said. “I’d be happy to think about it.”
Daniels – who is starring in the Hatton Garden Job – joked: “We could do an ‘old diamonds’ Quadrophenia.”
Curbishley previously branded the “karaoke sequel… totally ridiculous” and said a follow-up should only be made “by the authors of the original and would need to be worthy of the name”.
“It’s irrelevant, it’s f****** irrelevant,” Daltrey told NME. “It’s got no meaning at all. Quadrophenia was a moment in time. That’s the whole idea of it. I find all of the other things done to Quadrophenia, apart from the original album and when The Who played it on stage, to be a no no. They just don’t mean anything, what’s the point?”
He continued: “The film captured the moment in time. They’ve taken the rock out of Quadrophenia and made some complete nonsense from it.”
