BMG, the company behind the recent Joan Jett doc 'Bad Reputation,' is producing.

Cameron Crowe and his Vinyl Films banner will produce a documentary about the life and career of musician David Crosby.

The as-yet untitled project comes from first-time feature doc director A.J. Eaton, who has been following Crosby for the past few years. 

BMG, the company behind the Joan Jett doc Bad Reputation, is both financing and executive producing the film.

Michele Farinola of PCH Films and Greg Mariotti of Vinyl Films will also produce. Justus Haerder and Kathy Rivkin-Daum of BMG will executive produce, along with Jill Mazursky, Norm Waitt and James Keach for PCH Films. 

"It’s just such a compelling story," said Crowe. "David Crosby has been near the forefront of music and social change for the last four decades. Now 76, he’s forging a new path by seeking out younger musicians and trying to make a mark in a world now so different from the generation he came to define in the '60s. It’s a raw and moving portrait, rough edges and all."

Bad Reputation was the first feature for BMG, which premiered the doc at the Sundance Film Festival in January. It was later acquired by Magnolia Pictures.

Crowe's previous documentary ventures include Pearl Jam Twenty and the Elton John-Leon Russell doc The Union.
