Working closely with the Dead team, which includes band archivist David Lemieux and Mark Pinkus, GM of Grateful Dead properties at Warner Music Group’s Rhino Entertainment, will be ICM motion picture literary agent Bruce Kaufman, who was instrumental in bringing to the screen 20 re-recorded Beatles songs for the 2007 Julie Taymor film Across the Universe.

This will be the first time that the band has provided their full cooperation and support for a project of this scope.
