A film about the international rise of reggae legend Bob Marley and his Wailers band is reportedly in the works, according to the website, indiewire.com.
Titled Buffalo Soldiers (the name of one of Marley’s songs), it will be distributed by Mandalay Pictures, with writer Barry Morrow (Rain Man) and producer Cathy Schulman (Crash) reportedly assigned to the project.
According to indiewire.com, the film traces Marley and the Wailers’ emergence from the rugged Kingston community of Trench Town in the 1960s, to super-stardom a decade later.
