With a man like Bob, there are just too many to stories to tell and just too many ways to do it. Here’s a parcel of the article on the said site:
Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese is incredibly busy these days, finishing a Rolling Stones documentary titled Shine a Light due out in a few months and starting pre-production work on a thriller titled Shutter Island. Announced today is the addition of another documentary in Scorsese’s line-up, this one about legendary reggae musician Bob Marley. The currently untitled film has been authorized by Marley’s family and is aiming for release on February 6th, 2010, the same day as Marley’s would be 65th birthday. I only need one word to describe this: awesome!
Bob Marley’s oldest living son, Ziggy Marley, is a well-known reggae musician as well. Ziggy enthusiastically commented on the announcement, saying, “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.” The same production team behind the Rolling Stones documentary Shine a Light will be again working with Scorsese on this documentary.
“Marley was a pioneer not only because he single-handedly brought reggae to the world, but because his passionate, socially observant music has become a yardstick against which all reggae will forever be measured.”
