Morgen has been working on The Doc for four years, and has yet to release the title of the film. Variety reports that a source close to the production cryptically describes it as “neither a documentary nor a biography, but an immersive cinematic experience, built in part on thousands of hours of never-before-seen material.”

Sources say that live concert material plays a central role in the film, and that tomorrow will see an IMAX release. The filmmaker has a number of hats on the project, in addition to directing the childcare, writing and production. The report says the film may be shot for a Sundance 2022 premiere.

Bowie’s longtime producer Tony Visconti serves as music producer on the film, and the Oscar-winning sound team behind bohemian Rhapsody is also mixing and designing the project.

Despite previous reports that Bowie’s family refused requests to make documents and biopics about the singer, this film was made with live concert material with the support and collaboration of David Bowie Estate.

I’m a big fan of Bowie, and I’m excited to see the final product in this work of love.
