Berlin - Martin Scorsese is following up his Rolling Stones documentary with a film about the life of reggae legend Bob Marley, the US director's agency DDA said Friday.
Marley's son Ziggy is co-producer of the new documentary, which has still to be given a name.
'I am thrilled that the Marley family will finally have the opportunity to document our father's legacy and we are truly honoured to have Mr Scorsese guide the journey,' Ziggy Marley said.
The film is set for release on February 6, 2010, the day on which the singer would have turned 65.
Scorsese's Stones' documentary, Shine a Light, had its world premier at the Berlin Film Festival on Thursday.
