Wendy Dio, widow and longtime manager of Ronnie James Dio has revealed in a new interview with Sirius XM’s Eddie Trunk that she will be getting the first cut of the upcoming official Dio documentary next week for approval.
Wendy said in the interview that they hope to have the career-spanning documentary on the life and times of the legendary rock icon out sometime in 2022. She had the following to say about the documentary:
“I’m going to see the first cut of it next week. They’re coming out, and I’m seeing the first cut next week. We are hoping to get it out in ’22 — well, it will come out in ’22, for sure. Absolutely… [The filming] is done. They’re coming in to let me look at it before it goes to edit. And I’m very excited about it, actually — very excited.”
Asked what can the fans expect from the documentary said Wendy Dio the following:
“There’s a bunch of stuff from [old] Super 8 [tapes] and some other stuff. There’s fantastic interviews with all kinds of different people about when they were working with Ronnie or what they were doing at the time, maybe supporting Ronnie. It’s totally different to the [recently released Dio] book. And I’m very interested to see this cut. I’m excited, actually, to see it. And I think it’s gonna be great.”
