Scorsese Will Direct A Bob Marley Doc
The next musical documentary from Scorsese will concentrate on the life of the legendary Bob Marley. Scorsese has just finished work on a Rolling Stones documentary entitled Shine A Light, and this Marley doc will be filmed using the same production team.
Ziggy Marley, Bob's oldest son, told Variety: "I am thrilled that the Marley family will finally have the opportunity to document our father's legacy and are truly honored to have Mr. Scorsese guide the journey."
I'm looking forward to this. I don't know that much about Bob Marley, so having Scorsese theatrically inform me will be a pleasure. The release date of the currently-untitled piece is February 6, 2010, which would have been Bob's 65th birthday.
