Grateful Dead Movie in the Works

1 Comment 29 November 2011

The ICM Film Agency has been given access to the music of the Grateful Dead to utilize in a narrative-style feature film built around their songs. A similar project was undertaken as twenty Beatles songs were re-recorded and woven into the Across the Universe feature film. The film is expected to utilize the songs to capture the spirit of Haight-Ashbury in the late 60’s and early 70’s.

If you haven’t seen Across the Universe, watch the trailer below and tell us what you think of this potential use of the Grateful Dead’s music!

    What a wonderful idea! I’m not sure how I feel about the songs being re-recorded, but I am interested to see if they do the Dead some justice. I was impressed with Across the Universe and how the Beatles songs were used. I hope this movie has the same musical feel. Being a Grateful Dead fan for years and having seen several live shows, I know this movie has an incredible legacy to live up to.
