Keeping up with Ron Howard’s Beatles DocumentaryMarc Ehrenbold
Studiocanal and White Horse Pictures have been pegged to kick start international sales of the highly anticipated, official documentary about the Fab Four’s life on the road, starting at the Cannes festival. The documentary highlights never before released footage of the group’s early touring years.
The new documentary is still without a title since its announcement in July, 2014, but fans will be thrilled to know that the show is produced with total cooperation from Yoko Ono, Ringo Starr, Paul McCartney, and Olivia Harrison.
Jeff Jones, Jonathan Clyde (both from Apple Corps Ltd.), along with Michael Rosenberg (Imagine) are the executive producers of the documentary. Nigel Sinclair from Whitehorse and Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer are producing the show with Howard.
Audio from the concerts will be remastered by Giles Martin, music producer.
According to Sinclair, Howard will virtually be handing backstage VIP passes to Beatles fans allowing them amazing insights on the group, and the rare opportunity to witness how the members interact with each other on the road.
Sinclair adds, the documentary explores the intimate details about the group, how they interact and relate to each other, how they come up with decisions, given each member’s personalities and varying musical skills.
Expect rare footage of their Cavern Club and Hamburg performance, and their last public concert held in Candlestick Park, San Francisco.
The band’s appearance at the Ed Sullivan show catapulted them to stardom that involved a total of 166 concerts in 90 cities covering 15 countries.
One Voice One World gathered home movie clips and pictures from Beatles fans – then brought to Apple Corps. Co-producing the film are OVOW’s very own Matthew White, Bruce Higham, and Stuart Samuels.
