Scorsese’s George Harrison Documentary Will Debut This Year, Beatle’s Widow Says

A documentary on the life of George Harrison directed by Martin Scorsese is nearly done and is expected to premiere this year, Harrison’s widow, Olivia Harrison, said this week.
“I assume we’re going to announce it sometime soon, the actual [premiere] date, but it will be this year,” she said Thursday in Las Vegas, where she had attended the fifth-anniversary performance of the Beatles-Cirque du Soleil show “Love.” She was with their son, Dhani, and Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Sean Ono Lennon and longtime Beatles producer George Martin and his son Giles, who co-produced the “Love” soundtrack.
