The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Documentary
The first band-sanctioned Led Zeppelin documentary has been announced. Directed by Bernard MacMahon (PBS’ American Epic), the as-yet-untitled movie is billed in a press release as “the definitive telling of the birth of the world’s biggest selling rock band.” The documentary will also include never-before-seen footage, new interviews with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones, and archival interviews with the late John Bonham.
The documentary is set to tell the story of Led Zeppelin’s early days in the 1960s, coming to a head in 1970 when their second record knocked The Beatles’ Abbey Road off the top of the charts. The film is currently in post-production and, according to The Hollywood Reporter will be shopped at the Cannes Film Festival.
