    Jim Jarmusch Working on Stooges Documentary - He says its years away from completion

    Cult indie hero director Jim Jarmusch is working on a documentary about The Stooges, telling Rolling Stone that the film is years away from being completed.

    The director said that his doc will be more visually interesting than a typical documentary that relies on "talking heads," and he also plans to use new music that Scott and Ron Asheton recorded prior to Ron's death in January 2009, which Iggy Pop later sang over. "It's something that Iggy asked me to do about a year ago, because he knew I was a huge fan of the Stooges," Jarmusch told the magazine. "It's not an overview of Iggy Pop or his life or his career, but of course The Stooges are so important in the history of music, and certainly Iggy's the engine of it."
