A new documentary on LED ZEPPELIN is currently in post-production. The as-yet-untitled film is being helmed by Bernard MacMahon, the director of the Emmy-nominated music documentary series "American Epic", and will feature new interviews with guitarist Jimmy Page, singer Robert Plant and bassist John Paul Jones, as well as rare archival interviews with the late drummer John Bonham. It marks the first time members of LED ZEPPELIN have participated in a documentary about the group.
The documentary will launch in Cannes with CAA representing the U.S. rights and Altitude handling international sales. It is billed as the "definitive telling of the birth of the world's biggest-selling rock band" and will be told solely from the band's perspective, with never-before-seen archive film footage and photographs and state-of-the-art audio transfers of the band's music.
Speaking of the upcoming release, Page said: "When I saw everything Bernard had done both visually and sonically on the remarkable achievement that is 'American Epic', I knew he would be qualified to tell our story."
Plant added: "Seeing Will Shade, and so many other important early American musicians, brought to life on the big screen in 'American Epic' inspired me to contribute to a very interesting and exciting story."
Jones stated: "The time was right for us to tell our own story for the first time in our own words, and I think that this film will really bring this story to life."
No official release date has been announced for the documentary.
An official LED ZEPPELIN book, "Led Zeppelin By Led Zeppelin", came out in October.
