According to The Hollywood Reporter, a new documentary focusing on The Prodigy is currently in the works. The film is being produced by Pulse Films in collaboration with the band’s own Liam Howlett and Maxim. The documentary will be dedicated to the late Keith Flint.
Here’s a description of the film:
“Directed by multi-Grammy nominated Paul Dugdale and written alongside Sam Bridger, the feature — provisionally entitled ‘The Prodigy’ and being produced by founding members Liam Howlett and Maxim — will tell what the filmmakers are describing as ‘the raw, uncompromising and emotional story of a gang of young outlaws from Essex who came together in the vortex of the late 80s U.K. rave scene.'”
The band said the following:
“After the devastating passing of our brother Keef in 2019, the time feels right for us to tell the story of our band, all of it, the whole nine.
It’s a story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the people’s band, The Prodigy. Or simply, a story of brothers on a mission to make noise, to ignite the people’s soul and blow-up sound systems worldwide, that’s fucking what. This film will be made with the same integrity that our music: uncompromising, raw and honest. This one’s for Keef!”
Dugdale also commented:
“The film will be as wild as the band. Dark at times, strong changes of pace, it will be a visual assault too, stylistically striking, contemporary and challenging. We want the viewers to leave the cinema like they’ve just stepped off a roller-coaster.”
“The Prodigy are the most iconic British electronic band of their generation, a group who single-handedly altered the course of popular music. Our ethos at Pulse Films in the music documentary space has always been to tell unique stories about iconic artists in new and disruptive ways. Partnering with The Prodigy and their long-time directing collaborator Paul Dugdale enables us to continue that tradition and create a film that reflects the heart, sheer imagination and danger of The Prodigy.”
