A documentary about legendary rock band Led Zeppelin, titled Becoming Led Zeppelin, is headed to theaters.

The official documentary has been acquired for release by Sony Classics Pictures for North America, Latin America, Southeast Asia (except for Japan), the Middle East and Benelux.

A “work in progress” version of Becoming Led Zeppelin screened at the Venice International Film Festival in Italy in September 2021. The “now completed” cut features “a brand-new sound mix (and) newly unearthed material from the archives of all four band members,” according to the Sony Classics announcement.

Becoming Led Zeppelin is directed by the award-winning, Emmy and BAFTA nominated Bernard MacMahon. It was written by MacMahon and BAFTA nominated producer Allison McGourty.

It is produced by Paradise Pictures in association with Big Beach alongside executive producers Michael Clark, Alex Turtletaub, Duke Erikson, Cynthia Heusing, David Kistenbroker, Simon Moran, and Ged Doherty.

The hybrid docu-concert film also unveils a huge amount of unseen Led Zeppelin performance footage, including The Fillmore West (January 1969), The Atlanta Pop Festival (July 1969), and The Texas Pop Festival (August 1969).

Jimmy Page said, “When I saw the early cut of the film premiered, at the Venice Film Festival, it was amazing. The energy of the story, and the power of the music, is phenomenal.”

MacMahon said, “We have spent years designing this film to be experienced on the big screen with the best possible sound.”

McGourty added, “Sony Pictures Classics are the perfect partners because they are true believers in the theatrical experience and are passionate about giving the millions of Led Zeppelin fans a chance to see and hear them on the greatest screens and sound systems in the world.”
