Filming Has Started For Upcoming Ronnie James Dio Documentary

Wendy Dio, wife and longtime manager of Ronnie James Dio, has confirmed that filming has already started for the documentary on her late husband. The film will cover the legendary singer’s career from Elf to Heaven & Hell.

Wendy told The Metal Voice the following:

“We just started shooting. We did interviews last week — a few with me, with some technical people, with Geezer Butler [of BLACK SABBATH and HEAVEN & HELL] — and we will continue that in between the [‘Dio Returns’ hologram] tour, we’ll continue on with that. And then, hopefully, that should be out by next year — probably latter part of next year.

We started with Geezer Butler, who’s obviously Ronnie’s best friend from BLACK SABBATH. And I think we’ll probably do some of the [DIO] band while we are on tour. And other people — all the people close to Ronnie, people that played with Ronnie or were influenced by Ronnie and also his childhood years and going all the way through his time with ELF, with RAINBOW, with BLACK SABBATH. And I have so much footage — stuff that people have never seen. I’ve got some Super 8 stuff. I found a whole huge box of stuff — stuff from his childhood, stuff from the RAINBOW days, behind-the-scenes stuff. I’m getting it now transferred, so that we can actually view it.

A lot of these Super 8s were at Ronnie’s parents’ house, and when they passed away, Ronnie and I went there and took a bunch of stuff — we found a bunch of Super 8s — but we haven’t looked at them yet, so we don’t know what’s on them. Hopefully some surprises… I also found a whole bunch of tapes. Ronnie would always demo his songs in his own studio, and we had all these tapes which I had no idea what they were, but Ronnie’s engineer, Wyn Davis, who he always worked with, was over at the house and he looked at me and said, ‘Wendy, this is a goldmine.’ This is demo stuff. This is stuff that probably was never heard before, or it’s the beginnings of songs, it’s songs that haven’t been finished, or have been finished, or were cast aside. He said, ‘This is a treasure trove.’ So we will go through those and hopefully put some of those out as bonus material. We’re gonna do some re-releases that BMG is putting out of Ronnie, which starts, actually, later this year. And so hopefully we can put some bonus material on there. So a lot of exciting things going on.”

Wendy went on to say she is hoping to release the documentary in theaters, before it hits streaming services. She also added the following when asked about the possibility of a Ronnie James Dio biopic:

“No, I don’t wanna do a biopic. Nobody could play Ronnie, I don’t think. I don’t think so. I’d like to do a straightforward documentary of Ronnie’s life, with lots of footage of Ronnie. I’ve got so many interviews that Ronnie did and so much stuff that I’d really like to just keep it very, very natural.”

As I Lay Dying Release New Documentary “Misery Evolving – The Story Of Tim Lambesis & As I Lay Dying”

As I Lay Dying have released a new 15-minute documentary, titled “Misery Evolving – The Story Of Tim Lambesis & As I Lay Dying,” through August Burns Red vocalist Jake Luhrs‘ HeartSupport organization. The film tells the story of frontman Tim Lambesis and the band from their own perspectives. Lambesis was released from prison in December 2016 after infamously trying to hire a hitman to kill his wife in 2013.

As I Lay Dying commented:

“In the spirit of Mental Health Awareness month, a time committed to raising awareness and resources for people struggling with all forms of mental illness, we’ve partnered with Heart Support to share a video detailing more of the personal side of our experiences through the years. We wanted to share this part of our story exclusively through an outlet that exists to provide emotional support for anyone dealing with inner turmoil. Whether it’s with addiction, suicidal thoughts, depression, or abuse, we believe in the community they’ve created to connect with those who are in need of recovery or healing.

Through this video, our goal is to share our experiences so that others going through troubled times know there is help around even when feeling desperate and alone. Healing can be a long and indefinite journey. It is one we are continuously proactive in walking towards personally and together. Our past has shown us there are devastating consequences in leaving emotional and mental turmoil unaddressed. Our hope is to highlight the importance of actively seeking help, directing traffic towards a resource for doing so, and encouraging anyone who knows they need it to take the first step.

With Love and Gratitude,

–Jordan, Nick, Phil, Josh, Tim“

So we’re working on that now. It’s actually in post-production. I’m hoping to get that out next year.”

Led Zeppelin To Celebrate 50th Anniversary With Official Documentary

Led Zeppelin will continue to celebrate their 50th anniversary with an official documentary. The film, which is currently in post-production, is being directed by Bernard MacMahon and it will feature new interviews with Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones, rare archival interviews with the late John Bonham, archive film and photographs, and state of the art audio transfers of the band’s music.

Page said the following:

“When I saw everything Bernard had done both visually and sonically on the remarkable achievement that is ‘American Epic’, I knew he would be qualified to tell our story.”

Plant added:

“Seeing Will Shade, and so many other important early American musicians, brought to life on the big screen in ‘American Epic’ inspired me to contribute to a very interesting and exciting story.”

Jones also commented:

“The time was right for us to tell our own story for the first time in our own words, and I think that this film will really bring this story to life.”

There is no release date yet, but the documentary will launch in Cannes with CAA representing the U.S. rights and Altitude handling international sales.

Godsmack’s Sully Erna Says He Is “Working On A Feature Documentary About [His] Life Story”

During a recent interview with Tampa, Florida’s 98 Rock, Godsmack’s Sully Erna revealed that he is “working on a feature documentary about [his] life story.” He said the following when asked about a possible Godsmack film:

“A lot of people are asking us about the GODSMACK doc — if it’s gonna come out, when it will come out — and my answer is it can’t come out yet, because we don’t know how it ends. We’re still kind of living through it. Although I have been working on a feature documentary about my life story that’s kind of based on my book that has a lot of GODMACK elements in it as it gets toward the tail end of it, because it goes from the time I was born and it’s all the struggles I went through up until I got a record deal and it kind of ends there. So there’s gonna be somewhat of a tease of that story coming in, or at least the birth of it, but as far as the GODSMACK story, it’s still a little bit premature, I think.”
