Anthony Bourdain died tragically and unexpectedly in June 2018, but his legacy continues to live on, and it will be further explored in a new documentary from director Morgan Neville (“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?,” “20 Feet From Stardom”).
The project has been in the works since last summer just after Bourdain’s death.
CNN Films, HBO Max, and Focus Features are partnering on the still-untitled film, which is being produced by Neville’s Tremolo Productions.
Focus Features will release the documentary first in theaters before a television premiere on CNN, followed by a streaming bow on the soon-to-launch HBO Max in 2020.
Bourdain is best remembered for his work on the CNN original series “Parts Unknown,” which was honored throughout its 12-season run with 36 Emmy Award nominations and 12 wins.
A release date for the film has not been announced.
