A&E network, in collaboration with Pulse films and Four Screens have announced that they are in production for an official Ol’ Dirty Bastard documentary. The film will be the first official documentary on the personal life and career of Russell Jones, one of the co-founders of the Wu-Tang Clan.
If you are a Wu-Tang fan, or know any part of the legend that is Dirt Dog, secure your seats and popcorn in anticipation of the two-hour film premiere in 2023.
The inspiration behind the Ol’ Dirty Bastard documentary comes from the need to show the life of a star who everyone expected to be flawless but was also a man. In this film, expect to see an inside story of how Rusell Jones got into fame, wealth, adultery, and addiction. The Ol Dirty Bastard documentary will make you mad at Rusell for his flaws, but at the same time, you will understand him a bit more and recognize that he was only human.
“I am thrilled to tell the full story of my husband. With this documentary, the world will learn about the son, the husband, the father, and the artist,” Jones’ widow, Icelene stated.
Icelene Jones also provides exclusive archive shots of her husband for the documentary.
ODB was a bold and controversial rapper at that time. It is only a pity his family and fans saw less of his talent because of his untimely death from a drug overdose at 35. However, the A&E network will relive some of the biggest moments of his career on screen. The plot of the documentary embodies a story of a great American rapper who was gradually pushed to his grave by his childhood trauma, regrets, addiction, and the media.
The Ol Dirty Bastard documentary is co-directed by Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Director Sam Pollard (MLK/FBI, Black Art: In The Absence of Light) alongside his son Jason Pollard (Get Me Roger Stone, Bitchin’ The Sound and Fury of Rick James).
