Rashida Jones to Direct Documentary About Her Dad Quincy Jones
Published Aug 01, 2018Rashida Jones is an accomplished actress in her own right, but she does come from a famous family — and she's about to give us an insider look at her father's career. She's revealed plans to direct a documentary about her dad, Quincy Jones.
Simply titled Quincy, the film will be co-directed by Rashida and Alan Hicks, and it will be released on Netflix on September 21.
The doc details the title character's life and career, using both modern and archival footage to showcase his talent as a trumpeter, producer, conductor, composer and arranger.
"It's rare that somebody who has lived as much life as my dad is still interested in growing and knowing the next generation," Rashida said in a statement. "He is such a man of action and accomplishments, but we were so lucky to spend real time with him, to let him reflect on life and the larger picture. I feel honoured to be able to share that with audiences all over the world."
We're guessing that the interviews she captured on film with her father will be slightly less inflammatory than some of the ones from earlier this year.
Quincy won't be Rashida's first foray into documentary film, though. In 2015, she produced the Netflix doc Hot Girls Wanted about young porn actresses.
