February 13, 2008 – Bob Marley will be immortalized on screen in a documentary, Variety reports.
Martin Scorsese, who recently helmed the Rolling Stones biopic Shine a Light, is behind the project. The idea is already being praised.
“I am thrilled that the Marley family will finally have the opportunity to document our father’s legacy and am truly honored to have Mr Scorsese guide the journey,” the late singer’s son Ziggy Marley said.
The yet-to-be-titled doc is expected to be released on February 6, 2010 to coincide with the reggae star’s 65th birthday.
