The project will restore archive material filmed in 1969 as the band recorded album. Following his successful first world war documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, Peter Jackson has confirmed he will be directing a second archive project: a film edited from the full 55 hours of footage of the Beatles’ Let It Be recording sessions.
A feature-length documentary, called Let It Be, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg and culled from footage from the sessions as well as a celebrated rooftop concert in London’s Savile Row, was released in 1970 after the band had informally split up. The director Peter Jackson will be collaborating with the Beatles’ record company Apple, with the approval of Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, as well as Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison.

The Birds of Prey film has been a long-gestating project, with confirmation that at least one Harley Quinn spinoff film would be happening in the wake of the 2016 premiere of Suicide Squad.
