Martin Scorsese to Direct Documentary on New York's 1970s Music Scene
While his Vinyl series for HBO was cancelled after only one season, Martin Scorsese will now take another look at New York's 1970s music scene in a forthcoming documentary.

As Variety reports, the project is one of nearly 20 new documentary feature and TV series projects announced by Ron Howard and Brian Grazer's Imagine Entertainment. While plot details have yet to be revealed, the site notes that Imagine is presently negotiating with a distributor.

Variety also points out that the slate of projects also includes a Carlos Santana documentary. The film, currently in need of a director, will cover Santana's life and work.

Scorsese's last music-related feature was this year's Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story, a "pseudo-doc" that covered Dylan's 1975 tour of the same name. He also served as an executive producer on Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and The Band.

Scorsese's The Irishman officially arrived on Netflix today.
