New Jim Morrison documentary in the works

A new documentary about Jim Morrison is now in production.

Before the End: Jim Morrison Comes Of Age, is reported to focus of Jim Morrison the person, rather than Jim Morrison the music icon. Many of the interviews will be from loved ones speaking about Morrison for the first time – including brother Andy Morrison, Florida State University roommate Bryan Gates and star of Jim Morrison’s student film, Elizabeth Buckner.

Before the End: Jim Morrison Comes Of Age will also contain previously unseen home video footage and family photos.

The movie is being shot by Z-Machine Productions, run by husband and wife team Jeff and Jess Finn. Z-Machine has one other film to its credit, a documentary about UFOs titled Strange Septembers: The Hill Abduction & The Exeter Encounter.

No release date has been given. The last film about Morrison and The Doors was Tom DiCillo's When You're Strange, released in 2010.
