Scorsese Goes From the Stones to the Beatles


After having completed the Rolling Stones documentary Shine a Light (which won't be coming out until 2008, boooo), Martin Scorsese is moving on to another legendary rock group: The Beatles. Scorsese has announced that he will direct a documentary all about the life of Beatles guitarist George Harrison. Variety continues:

Pic will cover Harrison's Beatles career and later years that included a successful solo music career as well as a foray as a movie mogul when he backed Handmade Films and made pics such as Monty Python's Life of Brian and Time Bandits. Scorsese...will also focus closely on the Eastern spiritual pursuits that were central to Harrison's life.

I love that Scorsese has so much passion for music. He directed the 2005 documentary No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, along with the stellar "rockumentary" The Last Waltz, and he was involved in some of Michael Jackson's music videos back in the day. He's clearly committed to honoring some of the world's greatest musicians and I really respect that. I wonder who's next on his list?
