BMG has announced that a new documentary on influential heavy metal singer Ronnie James Dio is currently in the works. This will be the first documentary to be fully authorized by his estate.
Featuring unreleased archival footage and photos, the documentary will "complete" Dio's unfinished autobiography, which he was working on before his untimely death from stomach cancer in 2010. Directed by Don Argott and Demian Fenton, the film will explore his life and career that spanned from the 1950s to the 2000s.
Wendy Dio, Ronnie’s manager and partner, said in a statement, “I am very excited to be working with BMG on Ronnie’s long-awaited documentary.” “Ronnie loved his fans and I hope they will enjoy this trip through Ronnie’s life.”
Ahead of the documentary, BMG will be reissuing Dio’s 1996-2004 studio albums on March 20, which will also contain rare and unreleased bonus tracks.
