Jerry Garcia Film On The Way


Jerry Garcia
Variety is reporting that a Jerry Garcia film is in the works. Amir Bar-Lev, director of the documentaries The Tillman Story and My Kid Could Paint That, has signed on to direct a biopic focusing on Garcia's pre-Dead years. The film will reportedly be based on Dark Star, an oral history of Garcia's life written by Robert Greenfield. According to director Bar-Lev, the "daring script does justice to Garcia and steadfastly resists cliche." There is no word on who will be portraying the Grateful Dead frontman.
