BMG has announced a feature-length documentary film on the life and career of legendary heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio.
The film is the first documentary about Dio to be fully authorized by the artist’s estate. BMG is both financier and executive producer of the film, with all rights available worldwide.
The production of the untitled film has started.
The documentary will feature never-before-seen archival footage and photos from Dio’s personal archives.
His more than 40 years-long career came to an end in 2010, when he died of cancer at the age of 67.
“The film will offer intimate scenes with his closest peers, friends and family as they bring us inside the life of one of rock and roll’s true heroes,” BMG said in a press release.
The film is being produced by Don Argott and Sheena Joyce for 9.14 Pictures and executive produced by Ronnie James Dio’s divorced wife Wendy Dio for Niji Productions and Kathy Rivkin Daum for BMG.
