Academy Award-Winning Filmmaker to Make Film About Beloved TV Star Who Committed Suicide

Oct 25, 2019  •  Post A Comment

It was a suicide that sent shock waves throughout America. Astronaut Scott Kelly tweeted: “I watched his show when I was in space. It made me feel more connected to the planet, its people and cultures and made my time there more palatable. He inspired me to see the world up close.”

Former President Barack Obama tweeted: “‘Low plastic stool, cheap but delicious noodles, cold Hanoi beer.’ This is how I’ll remember Tony. He taught us about food — but more importantly, about its ability to bring us together. To make us a little less afraid of the unknown. We’ll miss him.”

The death was that of Anthony Bourdain, 61, on June 8, 2018. Now, reports Greg Evans at Deadline, “Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (‘20 Feet from Stardom’) will direct and produce a documentary about the late Anthony Bourdain for CNN Films, HBO Max and Focus Features.”

The story continues: “Described in the announcement as a film about the ‘uncommon life of the late storyteller, explorer and chef,’ the documentary first will be released in theaters worldwide exclusively by Focus Features, with TV premieres following on CNN and streams via HBO Max.”

The story quotes Neville saying: “Anthony Bourdain did more to help us understand each other than just about anyone in the history of television. He connected with people not in spite of his flaws but because of them. To have the opportunity to tell his story is humbling.”

Here’s a delectable seven-minute interview with Bourdain that we found on YouTube. It was made for Canadian TV 17 months before he died.
