1987 INTERVIEW WITH GARCIA
Filmmaker Leo’s credits include “This Is Elvis”, “Heroes of Rock & Roll”, “The Beach Boys – An American Band” and “Crosby, Stills & Nash – Long Time Comin'”.
Deadline is reporting that the film will be constructed around a three-hour interview that Leo conducted with Garcia in 1987. The historic interview was shot on negative film with studio quality sound and lighting.
A biopic to be directed by Amir Bar-lev had previously been reported, but was soon aborted as Grateful Dead Productions announced they would not allow any Grateful Dead recordings to be used in the film, nor would they allow access to any members of the Garcia family.
