Phil Spector Gets BBC Treatment from Vikram Jayanti


Vikram Jayanti snagged the Phil Spector interview for the BBC. Jayanti, who was part of the Oscar-winning team for When We Were Kings, is directing a documentary on the legendary producer, Arena – The Agony and The Ecstasy Of Phil Spector. Jayanti said:

I think it was the combination of the BBC, Anthony Wall and myself that persuaded him to agree to make the film. We have complete editorial control. It’s an empathetic film about a key musician.

Jayanti’s had great luck with weird old guys as subjects before–Lord Glenconner and Garry Kasparov, to name two. But his film on artist Julian Schnabel got killed by the lawyers.

(Disclaimer: this FBLA editor worked with Jayanti at UFA–where lunch was the most important part of the day.)
