Amy Winehouse Documentary

Well you knew it was coming. Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Asif Kapadia and Universal Music are working together to bring us Amy Winehouse’s life and career.

“This is an incredibly modern, emotional and relevant film that has the power to capture the zeitgeist and shine a light on the world we live in in a way that very few films can,” said Kapadia.

I feel like this movie’s going to be a mess….much like she was.

2 Live Crew Reuniting!

Luther Campbell of 2 Live Crew announced at the Sundance Film Festival the group is back together.  Campbell was at the Sundance Film Festival since he appeared in a short film.

Some of Campbell’s comments:

“I just can’t wait to just start practicing.  That’s going to be a blast.”

“We’re going to perform the songs and everybody’s going to be excited,” he said. “Some of the older people of our generation will be able to tell their kids, `You’re staying home tonight, we’re going to see 2 Live Crew and shake our booty!'”

So of course I have to post a video!!

Pearl Jam Documentary On Its Way

Director Cameron Crowe said his documentary on Pearl Jam will debut in September.  Pearl Jam gave him 18-20 hours of footage to go with the other stuff Crowe shot in 2009 and 2010.  That should be a great one.

Bob Marley Documentary

Another Bob Marley documentary is in the works and it’s being done with the approval and help of Ziggy Marley and family. Ziggy selected director Kevin MacDonald who’s done movies such as ‘The Last King of Scotland, ‘One Day In September’ and ‘Touching the Void’ (now that sounds like a good time!!). Ziggy said in a statement:

“We went to Kevin initially as an acclaimed documentarian but what has been most important to the family is his obvious passion for and interest in my father’s life as a musician and person.”

MacDonald says: “What made Bob tick is probably unanswerable but viewers will certainly feel that they know him a little better after seeing our documentary. I am grateful to the Marley family for entrusting me with their heritage.”

The movie should be out on May 11th which is the 30th anniversary of Bob Marley’s death.

Sammy Hagar Car Coming To You

I guess this is a good combo since he is so famous for his ‘Can’t Drive 55’ song. Talon Motors has a new vehicle called the ‘Invader’ that’s a 3 wheeler and can go 0-60 in under 4 seconds (sweet). It’s powered by a Suzuki Hayabusa engine with fully adjustable suspension. Well Talon hooked up with Sammy Hagar to produce a “Red Rocker” version that will have some custom designs that Hagar will create with Talon Motors. The standard Invader starts at $42,900 so I can’t imagine how much more when Sammy puts his touches on it.

Mary J. Blige to Play Nina Simone

Mary J. Blige is going to play the great Nina Simone on an upcoming movie. The movie will focus on Simone’s relationship with her assistant Clifton Henderson. Nina was one of the greatest in my opinion. She was a songwriter, pianist and civil rights activist. She really wanted to be a pianist but in order to get jobs she was pretty much forced into singing as well.

This will be interesting to see Blige play Simone. Simone has been known to be quite feisty when on stage.
