Filmmaker Albert Maysles has confirmed that he is working on a new film about Sir Paul and the Concert for New York City. Maysles is best remembered for his The Rolling Stones: Gimme Shelter documentary which chronicled the band's 1969 tour that ended in tragedy at Altamont Speedway 32 years ago. For this new documentary, Sir Paul asked Maysles to film in black and white, as he did in 1964 when he shot the Beatles for the movie Beatles: The First U.S. Visit, which was produced for Britain's Granada Television and released on video in the United States in 1991. The new documentary will chronicle the Concert beginning five days before the concert up until the actual event. Maysles says he will spend the next six months editing the New York footage.
