Film on Bob Marley and the Wailers in the works: Report



A long-awaited film based on the true story of Reggae icon, Bob Marley and his band, Bob Marley and the Wailers could finally be coming to fruition after reports emerged Wednesday that American film company, Mandalay Pictures are working on putting one together.

The movie, titled after one of Marley’s most famous songs, Buffalo Soldiers, will chronicle the success and trials encountered by Marley and the Wailers throughout their highly successful run from the 1960s to the 80s. Oscar-winning writer, Barry Morrow, who wrote the popular 80s flick, Rain Man and producer, Cathy Schulman who was a part of another Oscar-winning movie, Crash are said to behind the project, according to indiewire.com.

There is no word on the budget for the film or who will play Marley and co, nor is there word that the movie has been endorsed by members of the Marley family.

The last film about Bob Marley was the aptly titled Marley in 2012, which took a behind the scenes look at Marley and his rise to international superstardom. The documentary, filmed by Oscar-winning director, Kevin MacDonald, featured never-before-seen footage of Marley and his family as well as interviews with several of his family members, friends and business associates, from ex-wife, Rita Marley to former Wailers running mate, Bunny Wailer to ex-manager, Chris Blackwell and many others.

The movie was well-received in the United States, the United Kingdom and Jamaica, who each held special screenings to promote the film.

Bob Marley, along with Wailer and fellow Reggae legend, Peter Tosh formed The Wailers in the early 60s before Tosh and Wailer left the group in 1974 following disagreements with the group’s manager, Chris Blackwell. Marley would go on to form Bob Marley and The Wailers, which also included the I-Threes (Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffiths) and toured with the band until 1980, when his battle with cancer became more intense.

Marley died on May 11, 1981 in Miami, FL.
