Ziggy Marley And Paramount Producing Biopic On Bob Marley

Bob Marley will forever be known as the man who brought reggae to the mainstream. While he died at the young age of 36, succumbing to cancer, he made an impact on a music genre that before had mainly been restricted to Jamaica. Three Little BirdsCould You Be LovedBuffalo SoldierJamming, and Redemption Song are just a few of the many hits created by this revolutionary artist, and now his story will be presented on screen to the world.

Ziggy Marley, one of Bob’s eight children and a talented artist in his own right, is teaming up with Paramount Pictures in the development of a biopic based on his father’s life. There are plenty of personal topics the film could tackle in the life of Bob Marley, including how he was treated in his home country. Having a Caucasian father, Bob Marley was initial shunned and discriminated against in Jamaica. However, he continued his pursuit of reggae and brought it to the forefront, arranging music that both embraced the styles of his uprising and spoke out against violence and injustice.

Ziggy Marley is no stranger to success, placing himself alongside his father as an impactful reggae artist. He is an 8 time Grammy winner, which includes last year’s Best Reggae Album win for his self-titled album. He has also produced numerous documentaries on his father, has appeared in television shows like Charmed and Hawaii 5-0, and wrote the theme to the cartoon series Arthur. His philanthropy includes founding the Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment (URGE), which is focused on helping children, and signing on with Little Kids Rock, a nonprofit that provides free musical instruments and lessons to public school children in the United States.
