Jerry Garcia Documentary In The Works

A new feature length documentary is in the works

Rolling Stone reports that filmmaker Malcolm Leo, who has previously made movies on Elvis Presley and the Beach Boys, will build the documentary around a three-hour interview he conducted with Garcia in 1987.

Leo and his co-producer John Hartmann have secured critical music rights to tell Garcia's story, something that has eluded other potential filmmakers over the years.

Leo and Hartmann, who has managed bands such as the Eagles and Crosby Stills & Nash, hope to have the film ready by spring.
