Despite the terrible news of legendary film critic Roger Ebert‘s passing, the film about the man himself will go on. Steve James, the Oscar-nominated director of Hoop Dreams, took to Twitter to tell everyone that despite the tragic news, he and producers Martin Scorsese and Steve Zaillian will finish Life Itself, a documentary on the life of Roger Ebert based on his memoir of the same title.
We are devastated. But we will continue. We will finish the film.
