Docs That Rock

Demme leaves Marley

I’m back from vacation and getting back into the posting spirit. So prepare for some quick hits out of the gate this week, as well as the resumption of the MJ docs retrospective and maybe some new featurettes…this is the little blog with big plans.

The biggest news while I was gone: Page Six says that the doc on Bob Marley, first helmed by Martin Scorsese, is now being abandoned by his replacement Jonathan Demme. The piece says a bad rough cut screening spelled his doom with the film’s financiers. SlashFilm wonders if tough standards caused Scorsese to leave, rather than just scheduling problems. Not sure yet who is going to take over this long waited project with such an exacting estate.
