Early Marley Recordings to feature in upcoming Biopic


A film about the early life of reggae legend Bob Marley, featuring songs from his pre-famed career, is in the works. Unreleased early recordings are to feature in a new movie about the legend's musical beginnings.

The production for the film titled Rebels will begin shortly as part of an unprecedented $125 million development deal between Golden Island Filmworks and the government of Antigua. The deal was struck by Caribbean-born Hollywood film producer Rudy Langlais, who owns and operates Golden Island Filmworks.

'REBELS'ISAJOURNEY

According to numerous online sources, Rebels is a journey through the formative years of Marley's music career when he was signed to Johnny Nash's JAD Records label, a company which also included mob associate Danny Sims. The company has also secured the rights to his never-before-released JAD Records catalogue.

The film company has acquired the life stories of Sims, Cole, Nash, and David Simmons - the men who signed, developed, and produced Marley in the initial stages of his career - and is expected to give new insight into Marley's life. The show will also feature stories that have never been revealed before.

Rebels will not focus on the No Woman No Cry hitmaker, but the four men who discovered and mentored him, including JAD Records founder Johnny Nash, who first signed the star, and his partner, Danny Sims.
