On the heels of the incredible success of The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, Ron Howard and Brian Grazer‘s Imagine Entertainment and Nigel Sinclair and Guy East’s White Horse Pictures are joining forces again to produce an epic documentary on the life of acclaimed tenor Luciano Pavarotti.

The film will be an authorized biography about the world-renowned singer and philanthropist.

Speaking about the icon, Howard says, “Pavarotti’s life was replete with the highs and lows of great drama and, like any compelling character, he was also a man of considerable contradictions. His artistic ambition, propelled by his massive talent, and his deep love for humanity drove his career and the powerful bond with his audiences, but they also fueled his other life as a world philanthropist. I am intrigued by the way his emotional passion not only drove his music and his powerful bond with his audiences, but his gift of his other life as a philanthropist.”

“This is a man who spent his life searching for success, searching for his soul, and seeking his own fulfillment, while the rest of us looked on in awe at his talent and enormous, magical personality,” Grazer adds.

Nigel Sinclair says, “Pavarotti’s humble beginnings – the son of a baker, who grew up in a small town in Italy, and grew up to be one of the most acclaimed high classical artists in human history – is a truly powerful and life-affirming tale. It is great to reunite the team to tell the story of this incredible artist.”
