1 minute read

A documentary filmmaker has created a new biopic using more than 200 hours of audio tapes made by Hollywood legend Marlon Brando.

The personal archive was formed during the course of Brando’s life and includes the actor’s thoughts and insights on acting and the wider world that have never been heard before, Deadline reports.

The recordings feature in the new movie Listen to Me Marlon, created by filmmaker Stevan Riley (Fire in Babylon), which will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in the Worlds Cinema Documentary category on Saturday.

Listen to Me Marlon was produced by John Battesk (Searching for Sugarman), George Chignell (Ali) and R.J. Cutler (The World According to Dick Cheney). It will be aired on Showtime after its debut in Park City, Utah.
