The upcoming Beatles documentary will be featured in Hulu Documentary Films, after the streaming service’s new launch.
With the working title “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week,” the documentary is the division’s first exclusive documentary film premiere prior to its theatrical release.
Reports said that director Ron Howard focused on the iconic band’s starting years, from 1962 to 1966. It will also set to show unseen footage of the band’s journey.
According to Rolling Stone, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and the late George Harrison’s wife Olivia Harrison are producers for the film.
In an interview in 2014, Howard dished out a few information on what to look forward to with the upcoming documentary film.
“We are going to be able to take the Super 8 footage that we found, that was all shot silent,” he said. “We’ll not only be able to digitally repair a lot of that, but we’ve also been finding the original recordings.”
He added that they can sync it and create an impressive concert experience.
“I believe you’re going to actually feel like you’re somewhere in the Sixties, seeing what it was like to be there, feeling it and hearing it. And as a film director, that’s a fantastic challenge.”
“The Beatles: Eight Days a Week” is produced by White Horse Pictures’ Nigel Sinclair alongside Scott Pascucci. Executive producers are Jeff Jones and Jonathan Clyde from The Beatles’ Apple Corps and Michael Rosenberg from Imagine, and Guy East and Nicholas Ferrall of White Horse, a report from Hollywood Reporter said.
