(Alexander and Karaszewski are no slouches in the biopic department either, having written Dolemite Is My Name and The People vs. Larry Flynt.
Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who received rave reviews for penning American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson, are writing the script with Rick Yorn of LBI Entertainment joining Hill and Scorsese as producers.

Martin Scorsese has made numerous documentaries about great rock stars: The Last Waltz, No Direction Home, George Harrison: Living in the Material World, and Rolling Thunder Revue, just to name a few.
