Led Zeppelin’s surviving members Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones have begun working with director Bernard MacMahon on a new documentary to celebrate the bands 50th anniversary.
The film has yet to be named but it is currently in the post-production stage and will be revealed at the Cannes Film Festival.
According to Rolling Stone, this movie will be the first of its kind to have the band members participate and will include rare interviews with late drummer John Bonham, unseen film and photography, and interviews with other artists.
“When I saw everything Bernard had done both visually and sonically on the remarkable achievement that is American Epic, I knew he would be qualified to tell our story,” Page said in an interview with Variety. Plant added, “Seeing Will Shade, and so many other important early American musicians, brought to life on the big screen in American Epic inspired me to contribute to a very interesting and exciting story.”
“The time was right for us to tell our own story for the first time in our own words, and I think that this film will really bring this story to life,” said Jones to Variety.
