New Led Zeppelin documentary in the works to mark 50th anniversary


A new documentary focusing on Led Zeppelin has been announced to mark the 50th anniversary of the band.

American Epic director Bernard MacMahon is in charge of the project which currently remains untitled. Featuring new interviews with Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, the film will explore the band’s meteoric rise which began in the 1960s.

“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,” Robert Plant said of the film.

Page adds: “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.”

Jones added: “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.”

The film has been written by MacMahon himself alongside Allison McGourty with Duke Erikson and Ged Doherty being recruited in production.
