Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson had recently gotten praise for his work on the documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, and it looks like he\u2019s going to be working on more docu films moving forward. Just in, Jackson has been hired to direct a docu on the Beatles.\r\n\r\nAccording to Empire, Jackson will be directing a documentary based on the Fab Four using over 55 hours of unseen footage. Jackson had this to say about landing the project:\r\n\r\n\u201cI was relieved to discover the reality is very different to the myth\u2026 It\u2019s simply an amazing historical treasure-trove. Sure, there\u2019s moments of drama \u2013 but none of the discord this project has long been associated with. Watching John, Paul, George, and Ringo work together, creating now-classic songs from scratch, is not only fascinating - it\u2019s funny, uplifting and surprisingly intimate.\u201d\r\n\r\nThis announcement comes on the 50th anniversary of the Beatles historic concert that was held on top of the Apple Corps studio in London. Interestingly enough, all the footage being used in the film will come from the band\u2019s recording sessions during the making of Let It Be.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=IrabKK9Bhds\r\n\r\nWith everyone raving about Jackson\u2019s restorative work on They Shall Not Grow Old, I\u2019m wondering if he\u2019ll be using the same techniques for the old footage of this film. Then again, I\u2019m sure footage taken in the 70s will still be pretty understandable by today\u2019s standards. Of course, it would still be amazing to see the Beatles captured in what would look like modern cameras.\r\n\r\nAnd here I am just waiting for Pixar or Dreamworks to remake Yellow Submarine. \r\n\r\nNo release date or title has been announced for Peter Jackson\u2019s Beatles movie.
