Local Oscar-Winner Cameron Crowe Commandeers Pearl Jam Twenty

Homegrown filmmaker Cameron Crowe, writer/director of Almost Famous and Jerry Maguire, has announced the release of his first feature length rockumentary, Pearl Jam Twenty.

The film chronicles how Pearl Jam managed to survive all of rock's pitfalls to become one of America's most prolific and dependable bands.

Crowe told Vanity Fair's Lisa Robinson, "I wanted to tell that story of lightning striking twice. Nobody believed there was going to be a future for those guys after [lead singer] Andy Wood died, and it’s kind of a rock miracle that Eddie [Vedder] — who was living in California at the time — sent in an audition tape."

Crowe's 20th anniversary celebration of the band will receive a theatrical release next month and air on the PBS series American Masters in October.

Thanks for this write-up, Scott! Very much looking forward to this one! Two favorites of mine (Pearl Jam and Cameron Crowe) together on one project...although the last time I expressed kudos like this, it was about SHINE A LIGHT and I remember how you felt about that flick. LOL

BTW, Crowe's full-length script for the "UNTITLED" version of ALMOST FAMOUS still ranks, in my opinion, as one of the best contemporary screenplays I've ever read and seen translated to the screen. He's truly an influence!
