It has been announced that a new documentary about late Doors frontman Jim Morrison is currently in the works.
The film is a collaboration between independent studio Gunpowder & Sky and Jampol Artist Management, the company that manages Morrison's estate.
“Our job is to guide, protect and connect our clients’ extraordinary legacies to fans both old and new, while always maintaining the highest standards of credibility and authenticity”, says JAM founder Jeff Jampol. “I can’t think of a better partner than Gunpowder & Sky to help us introduce the timeless art of Jim Morrison to potential new generations of fans around the world”.
Gunpowder & Sky CEO Van Toffler adds: “Ever since the day my big bro brought home ‘The Soft Parade’ by the Doors, I was equally enraptured and scared by the prescient and sometimes haunting lyrics of Jim Morrison. He had such a wonderfully unique and fearless approach to it all, and as Jim said: ‘One shouldn’t take life so seriously, no one gets out alive anyway'”.
According to Variety, the new film will feature “unearthed” personal diaries and home movies of the singer, who died in 1971 aged just 27.
Gunpowder & Sky is working on a number of other music-based projects, including 69: The Saga of Danny Hernandez, a documentary about controversial rapper Tekashi69, Everybody’s Everything, a Lil Peep documentary, and Audible’s Words + Music audio project series with artists like Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow and Sting.
