The documentary film for the American heavy metal singer and songwriter, Ronnie James Dio, will be showing very soon. The artist was remembered remarkably for fronting and founding numerous groups throughout his career, including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell.
The film has been long overdue, but finally, the Ronnie James Dio documentary Dio: Dreamers Never Die will be featured in cinemas worldwide on Sept. 28 and Oct. 2 as a two-day-only exclusive.
The executive producer of this is Wendy Dio, Ronnie’s widow and longtime manager. She will tell the life story of one of heavy metal’s most influential figures, from his earliest musical ambitions as a ’50s doo-wop singer through his rockin’ days in Elf and Rainbow and his emergence as a heavy metal superstar in Black Sabbath and the Dio he came to be.
Viewers will be enjoying some never-before-seen video footage and photos. That is alongside with the interviews with metal icons such as Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, Glenn Hughes, Vinny Appice, Lita Ford, Rob Halford, Sebastian Bach as well as radio DJ Eddie Trunk and acting powerhouse Jack Black also of Tenacious D.
The cinematic experience comes courtesy of BMG and Trafalgar Releasing and this version of the documentary will also feature select outtakes. Kymberli Frueh, SVP for Programming and Content Acquisitions for Trafalgar Releasing said:
“We are excited to be partnering with BMG and Wendy Dio to present ‘DIO: Dreamers Never Die’ in cinemas worldwide.
“Ronnie James Dio has and continues to influence the heavy metal movement. This cinema event will take fans on a big screen journey into the creative and personal life of this notable frontman.”
