A new documentary is currently in the works which will chronicle the life story of English electronic band The Prodigy. The film is dedicated to the late vocalist Keith Flint and will be the band’s first major project since his death in 2019.
Directed by longtime collaborator Paul Dugdale, the feature will be produced by Pulse Films and co-produced by founding members of The Prodigy, Maxim and Liam Howlett.
The documentary has been described as “the raw, uncompromising and moving story of a gang of young Essex outlaws, who came together in the vortex of Britain’s late 80s rave scene” .
Although subject to change, the film is currently titled The Prodigy, and is expected to begin production in the spring of this year. No release date has been announced at this time.
According to Dugdale, the film will be “as wild as the band”.
“Dark at times, strong changes of rhythm, it will also be a visual assault, stylistically striking, contemporary and demanding. We want viewers to leave the cinema as if they were coming off a roller coaster.
Maxim and Liam Howlett offered the joint statement: “‘We’re making a documentary film about the band… so the fuck what?? After the devastating passing of our brother Keef in 2019, it feels like the time to tell the story of our band, all of it, the full 9…”
“This is the story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the popular band – The Prodigy. Or simply put – a story of brothers on a mission to make noise… to ignite people’s souls and blowing up sound systems around the world…that’s fucking what! This movie will be made with the same integrity as our music – uncompromising, raw and honest…This one’s for Keef!”
