Martin Scorsese’s Bob Marley film vs. the Weinstein Co one
The family of Bob Marley has refused to license any of his music for an upcoming Weinstein Co. film drama about the late reggae star even though his widow, Rita Marley, is its executive producer.
The reason? There is a competing Martin Scorsese documentary being produced by the Marley family-owned Tuff Gong Pictures and Steven Bing’s Shangri La production banner, the first theatrical documentary to license Marley songs. [Reuters]
