The Prodigy are set to tell the wild tale of their band in a new documentary that will begin production later this year.
The as-yet-untitled documentary will follow The Prodigy’s origins as they hijacked the airwaves in England before skipping across the pond to influence North America’s ’90s electronic music scene. Tragedy struck the band in 2019 when vocalist Keith Flint took his own life. The group’s surviving members Liam Howlett and Maxim will produce the film alongside Pulse Films and director Paul Dugdale.
“After the devastating passing of our brother Keef in 2019, the time feels right for us to tell the story of our band, all of it, the whole 9,” Maxim and Howlett said in a statement, per Billboard. “It’s a story of the chaotic and troubled journey of our gang, our band, the peoples band—The Prodigy. Or simply—a story of brothers on a mission to make noise… to ignite the peoples souls and blow-up sound systems worldwide…that’s fukin what! This film will be made with the same integrity that our music is—uncompromising, raw and honest… This one’s for Keef!”
“The film will be as wild as the band,” Dugdale promised in a statement. “Dark at times, strong changes of pace, it will be a visual assault too, stylistically striking, contemporary and challenging. We want the viewers to leave the cinema like they’ve just stepped off a roller-coaster.”
The documentary is expected to blend animation, interviews with the band and archival footage in order to tell their tale. No release date has been shared just yet.
In August last year, The Prodigy posted on Instagram a picture of Howlett working on new music, confirming that the band would remain active without Flint.
