Scorsese announces George Harrison documentary @ Cannes

Martin Scorsese announced he’s finished shooting a documentary “Living in the Material World: George Harrison,” working in tandem with Olivia Harrison, the musician’s widow, along with Exclusive Media co-chair/CEO Nigel Sinclair.  According to Variety, the film is expected to be released in 2011.

The film follows other Scorsese-helmed music-oriented films, including the Band (“The Last Waltz”), the Rolling Stones (“Shine a Light”) and Bob Dylan (“No Direction Home: Bob Dylan”).

Both Scorsese and Olivia Harrison said the title summed up how George was always trying to find the balance between the physical and the spiritual.

The film will reference notes, tapes and photos that have not yet been made public, as well as never-before-seen footage of Harrison’s life with the Beatles up until his 2001 death. It will also feature interviews with Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Eric Idle, Tom Petty, Yoko Ono and Phil Spector.
