Two films about Bob Marley are now competing with each other. One is a documentary that Martin Scorsese is working on (Marty, who recently directed the excellent Bob Dylan doc, No Direction Home, and The Rolling Stones concert/doc Shine A Light, out this week, is also working on a George Harrison doc).
The other is the latest in a long line of biopics. The Marley family is involved in both films, but it is getting messy, which is a shame. Bob Marley is probably the most universally loved musican ever - more than The Beatles, Dylan, or anyone else.
It's kind of a bummer. But to read more about it, check The Playlist - a cool blog about movies and music.
