Universal Music Group’s Polygram Entertainment and Twentieth Century Fox Animation are teaming up to develop a film based on the songs of Bob Marley.

Also serving as producers are Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob and Rita Marley, head of Polygram Entertainment David Blackman and E. Brian Dobbins of Principato-Young.

Added Cedella Marley: “My father has inspired art and artists around the world and I’m excited to embark on a new creative venture that highlights his incredible music. We are thrilled to work with Kenya Barris and David Blackman on this project as well as a Fox Animation who gave us this platform to introduce a new generation to my father’s music.”
