Film on David Bowie in the works
Director Brett Morgen, known for his work on the 2015 Kurt Cobain biopic "Montage of Heck", has reportedly been enlisted for an upcoming David Bowie film.
According to Variety, Morgen has spent the last four years working on the project, which has involved looking through thousands of hours' worth of performance footage, the majority of which has never been circulated.
The film has been described as neither documentary nor biography, but an immersive cinematic experience built, in part, upon thousands of hours of never before seen material.
Noted producer Tony Visconti has also signed on to the project, acting as its music producer. Members of the sound team behind the Freddie Mercury biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" have also joined the team to mix and design the project.
Not much else has been revealed about the film, including its title, but as per reports, Morgen is aiming for an IMAX release and a Sundance premiere in late January.
