Independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch is working on a documentary about Rock and Roll Hall of Famers The Stooges. He recently told RollingStone.com that he plans for the film to look cooler than most documentaries that are filled with talking heads. It's something that Iggy asked me to do about a year ago, because he knew I was a huge fan of the Stooges, Jarmusch said. It's not an overview of Iggy Pop or his life or his career, but of course the Stooges are so important in the history of music, and certainly Iggy's the engine of it. The director also said that he's going to use some new music that bandmate-brothers Ron and Scott Asheton recorded before Ron died last year. Iggy later sang vocals over the tunes. Jarmusch, who recently commissioned The Stooges to perform Raw Power in its entirety at All Tomorrow's Parties in New York, said that fans shouldn't expect the documentary to be released for a couple of years. Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek, Gibson.com
