Martin Scorsese has committed himself to directing an untitled documentary about the life of George Harrison. According to Variety, the film will be produced by Scorsese and Harrison's widow Olivia Harrison, as well as Nigel Sinclair.

The film will get a theatrical release, with the Harrison family willing to contribute sources form its extensive archives. Interviews for the project will begin early next year, but the film will take a number of years to complete.

The narrative of the documentary will cover Harrison's Beatles career as well as his later years as a solo musician. It will also cover his time spent as the head of Handmade Pictures. Scorsese will also focus on Harrison's Eastern spiritual pursuits, which were central to his life.

Scorsese stated, "George Harrison's music and his search for spiritual meaning is a story that still resonates today and I'm looking forward to delving deeper." Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are expected to participate in the making of the film.
