On Martin Scorsese’s New Film

Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese has signed to make a documentary on the life of George Harrison.

Olivia Harrison said: “It would have given George great joy to know that Martin Scorsese has agreed to tell his story.”

As well as Harrison’s time in The Beatles, the film will look at his solo career and movie projects, such as Monty Python’s Life of Brian and Time Bandits.

Scorsese also plans to explore Harrison’s faith in the Eastern spiritual pursuits that dominated parts of his life, the report said.

Interviews and early production for the film, which will be released in cinemas, are expected to begin later this year.

Details at this early day are, obviously, few, but I’m confident that this will be a film to see. 🙂
