Paramount Pictures And Ziggy Marley Developing Bob Marley Biopic

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Ziggy Marley and Paramount Pictures are developing a biopic on his father and musical icon Bob Marley.


Bob Marley was a Jamaican singer-songwriter who became an international musical and cultural icon, starting out with the group The Wailers in the early 1960’s, then going solo in the mid 70’s once the group disbanded, establishing his worldwide status, introducing generations to reggae music, and becoming one of the best-selling artists of all time. He died in 1981 at the age of 31 due to cancer.


There’s no further details in the report about any writers or producers being attached to the project, but a Bob Marley biopic is one that definitely interests me, especially if it’s given a studio budget and rights to his music.
