Led Zeppelin is getting the documentary treatment. The yet-to-be-titled film will feature interviews with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones, the first time the band has been involved in a documentary.
Fans will take a journey through the band’s early days in the 1960s music scene, leading up to 1970 when they out-charted The Beatles with their second album. The doc is currently in post-production, and will be launched at Cannes to celebrate the band’s 50th anniversary.
The movie also offers fans a look at never-before-seen archival footage and photographs, including interviews with the late John Bonham. “When I saw everything Bernard [MacMahon]had done both visually and sonically on the remarkable achievement that is ‘American Epic,’ I knew he would be qualified to tell our story,” says Page.
