Shawn Levy Set To Helm Bill Graham Biopic

A biopic of legendary impresario and rock promoter Bill Graham is set to roll for 20th Century Fox, after the studio acquired his autobiography, Bill Graham: My Life Inside Rock And Out, for adaptation. Shawn Levy will direct and produce the film, while David Graham, Alex Graham, and autobiography co-writer Robert Greenfield will co-produce.

Bill Graham died in 1991, aged 60, when his helicopter crashed in California, on his way back from a Huey Lewis And The News concert. His tragic end came at the culmination of a fascinating life which saw him escape the Holocaust and settle in the U.S, where he earned a degree in business. He began his career as an impresario and promoter in San Francisco by managing the San Francisco Mime Troupe. Eventually, he expanded his portfolio, and was instrumental in the success of artists such as Janis Joplin, Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane.
