Jim Jarmusch Directing Stooges Documentary

Posted By on Thu, Sep 9, 2010 at 12:39 PM

Cuyahoga Falls-born filmmaker Jim Jarmusch is planning a documentary about the Stooges, according to Rolling Stone.

The movie is nowhere near done, but Jarmusch gave Rolling Stone some details, like the fact he's staying away from a typical "talking heads" documentary. We hope that means there'll be plenty of live footage.

Jarmusch also mentioned that he'll be incorporating some of the last music guitarist Ron Asheton recorded before his death last year.

Iggy Pop handpicked Jarmusch for the job, because the director is a lifelong fan of the Stooges' music.

Still, for those worried that the project will become a movie all about Iggy, Jarmusch said,"It's not an overview of Iggy Pop or his life or his career ... The Stooges are so important in the history of music, and certainly Iggy's the engine of it." —Michael Gallucci
