David Bowie documentary ‘Moonage Daydream’ in the works

A new David Bowie documentary called Moonage Daydream is currently in the works.

The forthcoming film is nearing completion and will be released through NEON and Universal Pictures Content Group. Written, directed, edited, and produced by Brett Morgen, Moonage Daydream was a whopping five years in the making. According to a release, Morgen was given full access to hundreds of hours of never-before-seen-footage, resulting in the forthcoming documentary.

Moonage Daydream is “an artful and life-affirming film that takes the audience on a journey through Bowie’s creative life,” according to a release. A press release called this amalgamation of concert film footage and documentary clips a “cinematic odyssey.”

The release goes on to describe it as “a project that shows how Bowie himself worked across several disciplines, not just music and film but also dance, painting, sculpture, video and audio collage, screenwriting, acting and live theatre.”

Morgen worked on the film with music producer Tony Visconti, sound mixer Paul Massey, sound engineer David Giammarco, sound design team John Warhurst and Nina Harstone, and visual effects producer Stefan Nadelman.

Bowie fans can look forward to narration from the artist himself, alongside 48 musical tracks. Moonage Daydream also marks the first movie to ever officially be sanctioned by Bowie’s estate. The film serves as part of an ongoing Bowie75 commemoration of his musical legacy.

No theatrical release date has been announced, but Moonage Daydream will be out on HBO and HBO Max in spring of 2023.
