Martin Scorsese announces plans for a George Harrison documentary

Hollywoodnews.com: Martin Scorsese is no stranger to music documentaries, having helmed “The Last Waltz,” “No Direction Home,” and the recent Rolling Stones concert film “Shine a Light.”

So news out of Cannes that the Oscar winner hopes to have a George Harrison doc in theaters by 2011 shouldn’t shock anyone. The director loves The Beatles, and he typically works fast. Now we just want to know what will be in the film!

Beatles fans can expect to see plenty of previously unreleased footage and unheard songs in the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film currently has the working title, “Living In the Material World: George Harrison.” Scorsese has been developing the project with Harrison’s widow, Olivia, for some time.

“This is a deeply personal journey for me. It’s been excruciating,” Olivia told THR. “But I feel really safe, I feel protected. Marty had a connection with George, and they spent time together. And he’s passionate about film and music as George was passionate about music and film.”

As for Scorsese, he says, “‘Shutter Island’ took a great deal out of me. This was a form of interest and a really good sense of ignorance — not knowing what you’re getting into. I know the level is deep, and I know at some point there’s going to be conflicts between the projects. But this is a labor of love, it’s not something that has that kind of a deadline.”
