Look at all these music documentaries on the way!

Business is good for people making music documentaries. Here are three that are either ready to be released or are in the works.

1. An unauthorized Mac Miller film

Mac’s family isn’t happy about Margrette Bird Pictures producing a doc on the late rapper, but this is a production company that Mac himself co-founded. Will it get made? We’ll see.

2. A documentary on ex-Rolling Stones bass player, Bill Wyman

Called The Quiet One, it follows the life of Bill Wyman through 30 years with the Rollign Stones. It’ll be interesting to see the sections of the film that deal with that marriage. It hits theatres on June 21.

3. A Bob Dylan film for Netflix by Martin Scorsese

Scorsese has done a number of music biopics and docs (The Last Waltz, a Stones concert film, his contributions to HBO’s Vinyl) and now he turns his attention to Bob Dylan. Here’s the trailer for Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story which arrives on Netflix June 12.
