Scorsese is off Bob Marley film
Martin Scorsese has pulled out of the Bob Marley documentary he was to direct, the reason being "scheduling conflicts". A well known director has been lined up to replace him though.
Jonathan Demme is the man to take over from Martin Scorsese. Bob Marley's son Ziggy is executive producing the documentary. The release is scheduled for 6 February 2010, which would have been Marley's 65th birthday. The news comes from the BBC.
The film would have been another musical documentary for Scorsese, who has already made Shine a Light with The Rolling Stones. He's also got a George Harrison documentary and a film about Theodore Roosevelt up his sleeve.
