Peter Jackson to direct Beatles documentary

Footage is being restored by Park Road Post

Following the success of World War I documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, Peter Jackson is to direct a documentary about the recording of The Beatles album Let It Be.

The new film will be based around 55 hours of never-released footage of The Beatles in the studio, shot between January 2nd and January 31st, 1969.

The filming was originally intended for a planned TV special. The footage will be restored by Park Road Post in New Zealand, using techniques developed for They Shall Not Grow Old.

Peter Jackson said, “The 55 hours of never-before-seen footage and 140 hours of audio made available to us, ensures this movie will be the ultimate ‘fly on the wall’ experience that Beatles fans have long dreamt about – it’s like a time machine transports us back to 1969, and we get to sit in the studio watching these four friends make great music together.”

TVBEurope recently spoke to Stereo D, who worked with Jackson’s team on restoring footage for the World War I documentary.
