Wendy Dio has revealed that the documentary on her late husband, Ronnie James Dio, will be receiving a theatrical release at the end of summer. The film, which is titled “Dio: Dreamers Never Die,” previously debuted at the 2022 SXSW Film Festival.
Wendy told Lazer 103.3’s Andy Hall the following:
“We did a lot of different film festivals. You go to film festivals to get a buyer for the film. And we have secured a buyer. And it will come out at the end of summer in theaters; it’ll be in theaters the end of summer.”
Here’s a description of the documentary:
“[The film] delves deep into [Dio’s] incredible rise from ’50s doo-wop crooner to his early classic rock days in Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, to replacing the iconic lead singer Ozzy Osbourne in Black Sabbath, to finally cement his legend with Dio. Ronnie’s biography is completely unique to the tired sex, drugs and rock and roll clichés. The film is about perseverance, dreams and the power to believe in yourself.”
