Cameron Crowe is working in 3 movies for this year and one of them is the Documentary “Pearl Jam Twenty”.
Crowe will also work in the film “The Union”, a tale about the collaboration of Elton John and Leon Russell, with cameras present from the first day the two sat down to record their album.
On the other hand “Pearl Jam Twenty” is a retrospective documentary with never seen footage the band gave him.
Cameron Crowe talked with Rolling Stone magazine, saying he will be like Scorsese, reminding when Scorsese worked in “The Departed” and The Bob Dylan movie “No Direction Home”.
He even compared his two main projects:
“It’s the best souvenirs of the past. Some fabled footage you’ve heard exists but have never seen, and some interviews. So while The Union was, ‘How do we buff up the cinéma vérité?’, Pearl Jam Twenty is, ‘How do we do The Kids Are Alright of Pearl Jam, and sonic blast the best stuff?’ It’s a wider scope.”
“For Elton, the camera is a buddy. Pearl Jam is not prone to opening the curtain the same way, and that is the challenge and delight of it.”
