Green Day Documentaries (Plural) En Route

Green Day Documentaries

From the three albums planned for this fall/winter to the two corresponding band documentaries, one just isn't enough for Billie Joe Armstrong and Co.: "Filmmakers Tim Lynch, a producer of Green Day: Bullet in a Bible, and Tim Wheeler, a co-producer and editor of The White Stripes Under Great White Northern Lights, are creating a documentary on the making of the three albums, ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre! A second documentary is being created from vintage footage from their pre-Dookie days. Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong tells that 'the two Tims' have shot the band performing in clubs, rehearsing and recording over the last year and a half. 'It's not going to be the sitting down, head shot of me going "we started out blah blah blah,"' Armstrong says. 'We wanted to get into lifestyles of rock'n'roll and playing rock'n'roll and letting the story kind of tell itself rather than create revisionist (history).'" Sundance premieres are planned, naturally. [Billboard via The Film Stage]
