A new documentary which focuses on the storied career of The Velvet Underground is on the way.
Directed by none other than Todd Haynes; the man who was at the helm of acclaimed projects such as the Bob Dylan inspired ‘I’m Not There’ and the faithful, Ewan McGregor-assisted ode to glam rock that is ‘Velvet Goldmine’, it is set to feature a batch of new interviews with the remaining band members and will ‘rely’ on Andy Warhol films to inform its style.
Said to be an ‘intensely visual experience’, the as-yet-untitled project will also celebrate “a rich culture of experimental film, a vernacular we have lost and we don’t have, [and that] we increasingly get further removed from.”
Announced in correlation with the 50th anniversary of their massively influential debut album, it follows hot on the heels of the upcoming release new biopic Nico, 1988.
