6:34p - Eddie Vedder teaming up with... John Legend?
Vedder, Legend Pen 'People' Soundtrack

December 12, 2007

On the heels of penning the soundtrack to film project Into the Wild, alt-rock stalwart Eddie Vedder will now team with John Legend to write music for The People Speak, a documentary miniseries based on Howard Zinn's 1980 book A People's History of the United States, and its companion piece, Voices of a People's History of the United States, Billboard.com reports. The project will feature onscreen performances from the likes of Matt Damon, Marisa Tomei, and Danny Glover, plus Viggo Mortensen and Josh Brolin, and will showcase readings based on America's struggles with war, class, race, and women's rights.

"It's going to be a great piece of entertainment but more importantly something people can watch and learn and remember how great this country has been and how individual people have changed the course of history," executive producer Chris Moore said. "It's going to make them think, laugh, and cry and be proud to be American."

Production for the series will begin in January in Boston, though a network has yet-to-be attached to the project.


Well, this should be... interesting.
