Report: Scorsese out, Jonathan Demme in for Bob Marley documentary…

Legendary director Martin Scorsese dropped out of filming the Bob Marley documentary due to busy scheduling conflicts, director Jonathan Demme immediately took over Scorsese’s place. Demme does have experience in directing music documentary films to such music artists as the Talking Heads, Robyn Hitchcock and Neil Young. Demme’s other movies include “Philadelphia” starring Tom Hanks, “The Manchurian Candidate” and more.

I am kind of shocked that Scorsese pulled out. He seems too committed to this project until now. I guess Scorsese has too many upcoming films to make on his hands.
