Cameron Crowe's Elton John Documentary 'The Union' To Open The Tribeca Film Festival

It looks like Cameron Crowe has been working away on a film that we didn't really know anything about. Oh sure, he has that Pearl Jam documentary coming out later this summer and the next feature film "We Bought A Zoo" will hit in time for Christmas, but before both of those we'll get a third film; another music documentary.

It looks like Cameron Crowe has been working away on a film that we didn't really know anything about. Oh sure, he has that Pearl Jam documentary coming out later this summer and the next feature film "We Bought A Zoo" will hit in time for Christmas, but before both of those we'll get a third film; another music documentary.

The Tribeca Film Festival has announced that "The Union," a Crowe-directed documentary about Elton John, will open the festival with a free outdoor screening, followed by a concert. Now that's how you premiere a film. The movie will chronicle the making of the album "The Union," a collaborative effort between John and songwriter and musician Leon Russell. Until they started work on the album, the two had not spoken for 38 years.

Stevie Nicks and Don Was make appearances in the documentary as well, and while John isn't necessarily our musical cup of tea, with Cameron at the helm it should prove fascinating and we're kind of suckers for "making of" album films in any shape or form. The Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 20 through May 1, 2011. The first batch of titles will be announced on Monday.
