It looks like 2011 will be a great year for both Martin Scorsese fans and music heads alike. This year will see the legendary director releasing not only his very intriguing family/3D film HUGO CABRET, but also his long-awaited music documentary GEORGE HARRISON: LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD.

In speaking with the LA Times, Harrison's widow Olivia revealed the news that the documentary first announced back in 2007 would finally be seeing the light of a cinema sometime this year. "I assume were going to announce it sometime soon, the actual [premiere] date, but it will be this year," she said while in Las Vegas recently for the fifth-anniversary performance of The Beatles' Cirque du Soleil show 'Love'. "I just came from New York and Monday Im going to see it again. Were real excited about it. Marty is such a great storyteller, and of course he always finds the story that you dont expect."

LIVING IN THE MATERIAL WORLD's title comes from the former Beatle's 1973 album and song of the same name. This, of course, stands as Scorsese's fourth music documentary (THE LAST WALTZ, NO DIRECTION HOME: BOB DYLAN, and SHINE A LIGHT being his others), something the filmmaker has shown to be exceedingly good at crafting.
Extra Tidbit: Check out Marty's Bob Dylan documentary NO DIRECTION HOME if you haven't. It's terrific.

Harrison is my favorite Beatle hands down. He was just a brilliant humble artist. Can't wait to check this out. Scorsese is an added bonus.

Excellent

"The Last Waltz", "No Direction Home" and "Shine A Light" are all fantastic and are, quite honestly, all in the upper half of my list of favorite Scorseses in general. George Harrison sounds like more great... well, heh, material... for Marty to bring us in a similar fashion.
