Could It Be True? Bob Marley Doc Gets A Release Date

Published by Clay Cane on Thursday, February 3, 2011 at 8:00 am.

For years there has been talk of a Bob Marley documentary and biopic. Well, the biopic looks like it is forever stuck in legalities. At one point Jaime Foxx had the role but he fell off, Jonathan Demme was set to direct but he quit and supposedly the entire project was stalled due to rights with the music.

Now, there is the documentary, directed by Oscar-winning Kevin Macdonald and the movie is titled Marley. Supposedly he has the blessing of the Marley family. The film is set to be released in the fall of 2011, around the 30th anniversary of the reggae star’s death.

This is a film I’m definitely looking forward to but I hope the biopic still happens.   A few actors who I think could do Marley justice: Jeffrey Wright, Michael Ealy and Idris Elba.
