IMDb has an entry now. Interest is down 1%. a-hard-days-night-george-5

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

I found this on the internet. Looks like the film is completed and they are searching for a distributor so it won't be long now.

 

Director Martin Scorsese has completed filming his upcoming George Harrison documentary, now titled Living in the Material World: George Harrison. The filmmaker broke the news at the Cannes Film Festival, where he and George's widow, Olivia Harrison, are shopping the documentary to potential distributors. Living in the Material World, which is currently being edited by David Tedeschi, will likely be released in 2011, though no definite date has been set, Variety reports.

The documentary borrows its title from Harrison's revered 1973 album Living in the Material World, and both Scorsese and Olivia Harrison said that George's search for the balance between the physical and spiritual inspired the film's title. "I grew up a Roman Catholic and wanted to become a priest, so it is a subject matter that has never left me. The more you're in the material world, the more the search for serenity," Scorsese said. The documentary will track Harrison's legacy from his Beatles days to his solo career. According to Variety, Olivia Harrison spent hours going through George's never-released notes, cassette tapes and photos for the film, which will also feature new interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono, Eric Clapton, Phil Spector and more of the Beatles' contemporaries.

If I had money, I will be more than willing to be the distributer. But alas, I am but a broke college student. Please find one soon cause I really wanna see it!

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

Update: Olivia is releasing a book of never-before seen pictures of George with a foreward written by Scorsese. The book is also called Living In a Material World.

"Scheduled to be published this autumn to coincide with the release of Martin
Scorsese's documentary of the same name, the deal was negotiated by Abrams' editor-in-chief, Eric Himmel, and Andrew Wylie of The Wylie Agency."

So the movie is coming out in the fall.  We are getting somewhere folks!

I have a feeling that if this is coming out in the fall, it would come out around George's 10th anniversary of his death. It would make sense.

Wait, 10 years. Holy crap! Has it been that long? We miss ya Georgie hearta-hard-days-night-george-9

Thanks for the update PennyLane. I am really looking forward to this!
