Yesterday, the health department successfully submitted its long-awaited report to the board.
The never before seen footage of The Beatles’ farewell documentary “Let It Be” will be made by the acclaimed director Peter Jackson. According to Jackson’s statement, the film depends on the 55-minute-never-before-seen-footage and 140 hours of audio from the Fab Four’s chronicle sessions.
The original film entitled “Let it Be” has for some time been an account of the band members growing apart. It came out in 1970, soon after the band disbanded. John Lennon said in an interview that the making of “Let It Be” was a miserable experience. “That is one of the main reasons the Beatles ended,” he added. But according to Jackson, the additional footage assured a contrasting story from before.
Moreover, Paul McCartney, one of the band members, hinted at the upcoming revision of the film last fall. In an interview aired on Canada’s Radio X, he said, “Someone was talking to me the other day and said: ‘The overall feeling is very joyous and very uplifting. It’s like a bunch of guys making music and enjoying it.’”
The new film is being made with the help of Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison, the widows of John Lennon, and George Harrison. However, no release date has been set yet for the long-awaited documentary.
