A documentary about new wave icons DEVO is getting whipped into shape. 

Set to feature archival footage and interviews, it's the first documentary ever to be greenlit by the band. The project will follow the classic lineup of Mark Mothersbaugh, Bob Mothersbaugh, Gerald Casales, Bob Casales and Alan Myers.

The yet-to-be-titled project is currently in production through VICE Studios and Library Films in association with Mutato Entertainment. It's directed by Chris Smith, notable for his work on Tiger King and Netflix's Fyre

"DEVO was a huge influence on me," Smith said [via Deadline]. "Their approach to music, film, video and art was something I had never seen before and was one of the truly formative artistic influences that showed me there were entirely new ways to look at things."

In other recent DEVO news, Mark Mothersbaugh scored the films Cocaine Bear and The Magician's Elephant.
