“Stardom” Helmer Plans Orson Welles Doco

Oscar-winning “20 Feet From Stardom” director Morgan Neville has settled on his next original feature documentary – a Netflix film about the final fifteen years in the life of cinema legend Orson Welles.

Neville will explore Welles’ complex relationship with Hollywood as he worked artistically with the constant nagging of making films commercial at the same time. Frank Marshall and Filip Jan Rymzsa will executive produce.

Netflix recently acquired Welles’ unfinished final feature “The Other Side Of The Wind” and is financing its completion and restoration. ‘Wind’ will have a significant presence in the new documentary and both films are set to launch on the service in 2018.
