Ron Howard To Helm Pavarotti Doco

Imagine Entertainment and White Horse Pictures, having teamed up on the successful “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week,” are re-teaming for another musical documentary – this one on famed tenor and opera icon Luciano Pavarotti.

Ron Howard will direct and Brian Grazer will produce the project which has full access to the singer’s family archives, interviews and live music footage. The project will be made in collaboration with Universal Music Group partner Polygram Entertainment.

Howard, Nigel Sinclair, Michael Rosenberg and Jeanne Elfant Festa will also produce the film which also sees the return of the ‘Beatles’ team of editor Paul Crowder and executive producer and writer Mark Monroe.

Studiocanal will co-finance and will oversee international sales with White Horse Pictures with plans to release the film next year.
