Martin Scorsese is about to make a documentary film about Bob Marley.


According to Variety magazine, Martin Scorsese would make a documentary film about the life of Bob Marley.

The famous director to whom we owe some of the greatest films in the history of Hollywood like Raging Bull and Taxi Driver, is also a big fan of music. In 2003, he had already made a film about blues entitled Feel Like Going Home followed a few years later by a documentary about Bob Dylan, and another one about the Rolling Stones, Shine a Light, shown in early February at the Berlin Film Festival.
It is with the same team as for the latter that the film about the life of Bob Marley will be produced and directed. Indeed, Scorsese will be joined by Shangri-La Entertainment and Fortissimo Films.

Tuff Gong Pictures’ participation can also be noticed and it is with the support of the Marley family that this film will be made:

"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." [Ziggy Marley]

However, we shall be patient because the film should not see the light of day before the 6th of February 2010, when Bob Marley would have been 65 years.
