After helming such cinematic classics as Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas and The Departed, Martin Scorsese could work on any project that tickles his fancy. Turns out, he's a Deadhead.
The legendary director is working on a Grateful Dead documentary to commemorate the band's 50th anniversary, reports Deadline.
Scorsese serves as executive producer, while Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story, Happy Valley) directs.
The movie has been authorized by the surviving members of the band, who have also participated in on-screen interviews. Neither the title nor a specific release date have been announced so far.
Scorsese is no stranger to making music documentaries. He's also behind full-length features on The Band (The Last Waltz), Bob Dylan (No Direction Home), The Rolling Stones (Shine a Light) and George Harrison (Living in the Material World).
