One of the main reasons why we're constantly talking about Attack The Block (which is opening in selected cities on July 29) is not only because it's an interesting film (well to me it is), but also because Sony/Screen Gems has been advance screening this film A LOT everywhere. I've lost count how many invites I've gotten to see the film, and some in cities I don't even live in.

"We are working on his documentary, which should be out in the fall. I am producing the documentary and Kevin McDonald will direct it. People are going to have not only the connection that you have now with the Bob Marley legend, but it will also show the emotional side of our father. The emotion of Bob throughout his life experiences is a pretty pertinent thing. It is not just about his music."
