The life of Grateful Dead singer and guitarist Jerry Garcia is coming to the silver screen with a new biopic that’s currently in the works.
Director Amir Bar-Lev, director of The Tillman Story has already signed on to direct the film which is still labeled as “in the works.”
The movie centers around the singers time with his band and is based off the script Robert Greenfield’s Dark Star: An Oral Biography on Jerry Garcia.
Greenfield told Rolling Stone Magazine:
“I don’t think Jerry is easily understood.” adding “I think he’s a complex human being. After a certain point, everyone had their own vision of Jerry. This film is about who he really was before people made him what they wanted him to be.”
I hope the movies in 3D, they could do some very trippy things with the Dead’s music and 3D capabilities.
