Woodstock: Ang Lee's next project

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Caught this down at Variety Asia about Ang Lee's new project with Focus Features, based on a memoir called Taking Woodstock: A True Story of a Riot, Concert, and a Life:

Set during the politically turbulent summer of '69, story follows an Everyman working at his parents' motel in the Catskills who inadvertently sets in motion what would become the generation-defining concert.

"Elliot's exuberant and heartfelt story is a perfect window onto the Woodstock experience," Schamus said. "It explores an inspiring historical moment when liberation and freedom were in the air."
I'm glad Lee can choose his projects at this point in his career - but another Woodstock movie?

The sixties have been over for some time now....let it go people...
