July 24, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Jerry Garcia, the legend from Grateful Dead, is recently going to have his first bio-pic.

Talks have been around for this film project and news is that it would commence as the 30th anniversary of Garcia’s death anniversary comes closer.

This feature film depicts the life and works of the late-great Grateful Dead leader. The movie already has a good script and a very able director.

Amir Bar-Lev, is going to direct this bio-pic. He previously had earned credentials as the director of the documentary The Tillman Story. The movie is being produced by Eric Eisner and Bona Fide partners Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa who have produced Little Miss Sunshine. The script is being handled by Topper Lilien.

It’s revealed that the film is based on the earlier life of Garcia based on historical account from Robert Greenfield’s book Dark Star and other information gathered from family, friends, and contemporaries.

It should be a treat for the Grateful Dead fans, affectionately called “Deadheads’.
