Johnny Winter Confirms Documentary Filming
A definitive Johnny Winter documentary is confirmed to be in the works with filmmaker Greg Olliver at the helm. Oliver, whose credits include co-directing and producing the critically acclaimed documentary Lemmy, will shadow the iconic bluesman throughout 2012. The theatrical release of the documentary is planned for 2013.
“I grew up in Texas listening to the blues, so making a film with Johnny is a dream come true for me,” says Olliver. “And since there aren’t many blues icons left out there, I feel very honored to be working with him. His is a story that needs to be told!”
The Johnny Winter documentary will be filmed throughout 2012 and produced by Olliver’s company, Secret Weapon Films.
