Jonathan Demme is taking over for Martin Scorsese as director on the Bob Marley documentary according to Variety
Demme will work with the Marley family on the biopic of the legendary singer songwriter which is scheduled for a global release on February 6th 2010, in what would have been Marley's 65th birthday.
Demme previously worked on another flick about legendary songster the Neil Young documentary "Heart of Gold" from '06.
Scorsese left the project due to "scheduling conflicts".
If Scorsese had to step out--Demme makes a great replacement HOG is great docu and I expect the Marley tribute to be the same.
