Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese’s latest addition to his estimable contribution to the music documentary canon (No Direction Home: Bob Dylan, Shine a Light, The Last Waltz) wrapped shooting, has a title, and is plotting a 2011 release. As the Playlist reports from the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Scorsese is currently adopting the title of Harrison’s 1973 album Living in the Material World for his forthcoming documentary about the man, which features interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Tom Petty, and Phil Spector, among others.
Though the film will reportedly place significant focus on Harrison’s dedication to Hinduism, it will also cover his time in the Beatles and subsequent solo career.
Scorsese spoke to Variety about his connection to Harrison’s spiritual beliefs: “I grew up a Roman Catholic and wanted to become a priest, so it is a subject matter that has never left me,” he said. “The more you’re in the material world, the more the search for serenity.”
