Filmmaker Kevin MacDonald confirmed in a recent interview that his long awaited Bob Marleydocumentary is near completion. MacDonald told Indie Wire, “I’ve got the Bob Marley film, which I should be finishing up the edit of today. And then the plan is to take it to Toronto.”

MacDonald is referring to the Toronto International Film Festival. While it’s not an official addition yet, The Last King of Scotland director plans to make it one soon. McDonald acknowledges, “Yes, it’s a project with a long history.”

He added, “My involvement with Marley goes back to around the time I was making Last King of Scotland. I was talking to Chris Blackwell, founder of Island Records, about making a documentary that was tangentially about Marley taking a bunch of rastas on a plane from Jamaica to Ethiopia to the concert—to celebrate what would have been Bob’s 60th birthday. And for various reasons that fell apart, but I stayed in touch with the Marley world.” (more)
