Scorsese to make Marley documentary

Martin Scorsese is lining up another documentary about a music legend - the Oscar winner has announced plans to make a movie about Bob Marley.

Scorsese has previously explored the '60s heyday of Bob Dylan's career in 'No Direction Home' and his new Rolling Stones concert film 'Shine A Light' premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in Germany on February 7.

Now the director has signed up to shoot a documentary on reggae legend Marley, who died of cancer in 1981 at the age of 36.

Marley's son Ziggy Marley will act as executive producer on the currently untitled film, which is set for release on 6 February 2010, the 65th anniversary of the star's birth.
