According to Variety, Martin Scorsese is negotiating to direct a theatrical documentary on Boeing rival Airbus, constructor of Europe's super jumbo jet.

Scorsese will team with Spanish docu producer-director Jose Luis Lopez-Linares ("Un instante en la vida ajena," "Strangers to Themselves"), who will take a co-director credit.

Per Spanish monthly movie magazine "Fotogramas," the doc will establish a parallel between the creation of Airbus airliners and a cathedral, recording the contribution of a factory worker, engineer and architect. Pic will shoot in Toulouse, France; Bremen, Germany; and Cadiz, Spain.

The Airbus docu is the latest project from Coleccion Inmortales, a joint venture created in 2003 by Madrid's Morena Films and Fernando Sulichin's Paris-based Rule 8 to produce theatrical docs directed by maverick filmmakers.
