BB King Film To Hit UK Theaters
BB King: The Life Of Riley is directed and produced by Jon Brewer, who has been given exclusive access to King's friends, family and colleagues. The movie promises to be a no-holds-barred doc that explores how a black cotton picker from Mississippi turned his life around and battled against the odds (and rampant racism) to become King Of The Blues, performing over 15,000 gigs and selling in excess of 40 million records worldwide to date.
The film is narrated by Morgan Freeman and features contributions from Eric Clapton, Bono, Ringo Starr, Carlos Santana, Bill Wyman, Slash, Bonnie Raitt, Peter Green, Buddy Guy, Ronnie Wood, Bruce Willis and many more.
