Legendary Ronnie James Dio will be the subject of a new documentary, writes Rolling Stone.
The Documentary will be produced by BMG and Wendy Dio. It will be the first-ever career-spanning documentary on the artist. Dio's career ended because of his untimely death from stomach cancer in 2010 at the age of 67.
The documentary is currently in production. Directed by Don Argott and Demian Fenton, the film will include previously unseen footage and photos from the singer’s archives and will feature scenes with friends and family. According to a statement, the documentary is “set against the backdrop of Dio’s unfinished autobiography."
“I am very excited to be working with BMG on Ronnie’s long-awaited documentary,” Wendy Dio, Ronnie’s manager who was also married to the singer, said in a statement. “Ronnie loved his fans and I hope they will enjoy this trip through Ronnie’s life.”
On March 20th, BMG will reissue Dio’s 1996-2004 studio albums. The newly remastered collection has long been out of print on CD and never previously released on vinyl in North America.
