New Scorsese Film By Year End?

It looks like the long-awaited documentary about Beatle George Harrison may finally be coming our way. According to an article in the Los Angeles Times, Harrison’s widow, Olivia hinted that the film should have it premiere “sometime soon.”

Titled, “George Harrison: Living in the Material World,” this is Scorsese’s fourth rock and roll documentary beginning with, “The Last Waltz,” which focused on The Band’s farewell concert. This was followed by a look at Bob Dylan in  “No Direction Home” in 2005 and most recently  and The Rolling Stones concert film “Shine A Light” in 2008.

The combination of Scorsese and Beatles has me salivating!

    Hi John:

    Don’t forget “Hugo Cabret” coming in November. That will be 2 Scorsese films.

      Thanks for the correction. This only makes the coming fall season that much more enticing! It does not beat 2010 when he had four directing projects out (“Shutter Island”, the first episode of “Boardwalk Empire” and two docs, “A Letter to Elia” and “Public Speaking.”) but it will do.

    Ever since Scorsese claimed he was slowing down, he seems to have done more than ever! Really looking forward to the George Harrison movie, as I loved the other three rock films you list here.
