Cameron Crowe To Direct Parl Jam Documentary

Cameron Crowe has been working on this documentary for several years, but according to Chartattack, it will have its world premiere in September, with a limited theatrical release before being broadcasted on PBS October 21st.

The movie, entitled ‘Pearl Jam Twenty’, or ‘PJ20’, will follow the band’s career from their grunge days in Seattle (when they were playing under the moniker Mookie Blaylock) to the present.

Crowe, who already directed a music video for the band in 2009, has been a long time fan as the soundtrack of his upcoming film ‘We bought A Zoo’ will also feature a lot of Pearl Jam’s music, like his 1992 movie ‘Singles’, for which Pearl Jam actually wrote 2 new songs (one of them was 'State of Love and Trust’)

According to guitarist Mike McCready, Crowe had access to ‘all our footage, with all of our existing footage that we have’ and bassist Jeff Ament declared last year:

‘The whole movie is Cameron’s love letter to us – but it’s equal parts complimentary and really painful. It shows our growing pains and some real bad times, including Roskilde [the 2000 festival show where nine fans were trampled and killed]. It was just really hard to watch.’

And since you only talk well about things you know well and love, Crowe seems to be the perfect fit for this:
‘There is only one band of their generation for which a film like this could even be made, and I'm honored to be the one given the opportunity to make it’, he said in an interview.

The release of the movie could coincide more or less with Pearl Jam’s celebration of their 20th anniversary at a festival this Labor Day, and meanwhile you can watch this Pearl Jam’s video directed by Cameron Crowe:
