Peter Jackson to Direct Documentary on The Beatles Recording ‘Let It Be’

The Beatles

Joshua Bote, writing at NPR:

As was the case with They Shall Not Grow Old, which found Jackson reviving a trove of archival World War I footage, the Lord of the Rings filmmaker is mining 55 hours of unreleased footage of the band, using restoration techniques to render it in modern quality. The footage was originally intended for Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1970 documentary Let it Be.
