Following the death of charismatic frontman Keith Flint, Maxim and Liam Howlett of The Prodigy have signed up for a new documentary on the history of the electronic music group.
Katie Bain for Billboard reports that the project will “track the story of the iconic English electronic outfit, from their U.K. origins to their boundary-pushing influence on the ’90s electronic boom in America.”
“The film will be made with the same integrity that our music is: uncompromising, raw and honest… This one’s for Keef!”
Paul Dugdale is signed on to direct. Dugdale has been nominated for multiple Grammy Awards for his music films for Coldplay and has worked with Taylor Swift, Adele, Coldplay, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran, U2 and most recently Ariana Grande’s Netflix “global event” excuse me, i love you. He also directed The Prodigy’s 2011 World’s On Fire concert film.
“After the devastating passing of our brother Keef in 2019, the time feels right for us to tell the story of our band, all of it, the whole 9,” a statement attributed to the Howletts and quoted by Billboard reads. “It’s a story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the peoples band — The Prodigy. Or simply — a story of brothers on a mission to make noise… to ignite the peoples souls and blow-up sound systems worldwide… that’s fukin what! This film will be made with the same integrity that our music is — uncompromising, raw and honest… This one’s for Keef!”
No further information was available but an imdb page for the film has been set up with a barebones synopsis.
