The Wrecking Crew Movie Sidelined By Music Rights
Starting in the mid-'90s, Denny Tedesco began assembling footage for a documentary about the musicians, simply titled The Wrecking Crew.

Denny told Music Radar's Joe Bosso that the film has been done since '08 and has screened at film festivals, but hasn't been released due to the music rights needed for the movie.
