Docs That Rock

A Proper Pearl Jam doc

Last November I wrote about Pearl Jam’s underground indie documentary that had some strange timing and was an Internet-only release. Now the band is going high profile. Our friends over at The Playlist have gathered news that Cameron Crowe will oversee a doc to commemorate the band’s 20th anniversary in 2011. The director and band go back decades: Pearl Jam did two songs for Crowe’s 1992 film Singles and Eddie Vedder, Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard performed cameos (as the band Citizen Dick – see above for the nostalgic clip.) Notable director Morgan Neville, whose list of credits include docs on Muddy Waters and Hank Williams, will produce. The project will utilize existing footage about the band – note that the deluxe edition of their recently released and remixed album Ten included a DVD their rarely seen MTV Unplugged concert.
