Legendary director MARTIN SCORSESE will once again focus his considerable directorial skills on a new music-related documentary film with the 1970's New York City music scene as the subject. Mr. Scorsese's first rock documentary was 1978's 'The Last Waltz,' chronicling the final show from The Band at San Francisco's Winterland Auditorium, and in ensuing years, has treated music fans to some other excellent music-related films. Among some of Scorsese's most memorable: 'Shine A Light'  (Rolling Stones at The Beacon in NYC), 'No Direction Home' (Bob Dylan), 'George Harrison: Living In The Material World,' and his most recent work (another Dylan film!), 'Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese.'  It's been reported that Mr. Scorsese is teamed up with Ron Howard and Brian Grazer of Imagine Entertainment for the new production. While there are no provided details about the content of the upcoming film, Martin's Scorsese's love of the American Rock & Roll pantheon is well known, and his use of iconic classic rock music in his films has made for many an excellent film soundtrack. It's reasonable to expect that there will plenty of loud content and unique footage...Can't wait! Rock ON, Martin Scorsese!
