A new Led Zeppelin documentary has been announced to mark the 50th anniversary of the legendary rock band.
Directed by American Epic‘s Bernard MacMahon, the untitled project charts the rise of all four members through the 1960s and covers the band’s early years – culminating in 1970 when ‘Led Zeppelin II’ cemented their reputation by knocking The Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’ from the top of the US charts.
While the film boasts new interviews with Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, it’s also set to feature previously unseen interviews with the late John Bonham
Currently in post-production, the currently untitled documentary was written by Bernard MacMahon and Allison McGourty, edited by Dan Gitlin, with sound supervision by Nicholas Bergh, and produced by Allison McGourty, Bernard MacMahon, Garbage guitarist Duke Erikson and Ged Doherty.
The documentary comes amid hopes that the band could reform for their 50th anniversary, after previously reuniting for their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995 and their comeback performance at Ahmet Ertegun’s O2 Arena tribute concert in 2007.
