Led Zeppelin have announced that a documentary movie to mark their 50th anniversary was in post-production, featuring new interviews with Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, and John Paul Jones, making it the “first and only time the band have participated” in such a project.
Currently untitled, the film is directed by Bernard MacMahon. A statement said that his Led Zeppelin movie “traces the journeys of the four members through the music scene of the 1960s, their meeting in the summer of 1968 for a rehearsal that will change the future of rock and culminates in 1970 when their second album knocked The Beatles off the top of the charts and they become the number one band in the world.”
Along with the new scenes, it also contains “rare archival interviews” with late drummer John Bonham. The statement added that only the four band members are heard “with no outside voices of conjecture” over never-before-seen film clips and photographs.
More details will be revealed soon.
