Hollywood, CA – Morgan Freeman has built up quite the entertainment resume; spending more than three decades in front of and behind the camera. The Memphis native started off doing soap operas and kids shows, and it wasn’t until the 80s that he started getting big roles in internationally recognized films. Over the las decade, the Oscar winner has become known for his narrative skills in documentaries like the 2011 IMAX film, ‘Born to Be Wild.’
Freeman, who is now 77-years-old, is still going strong in front of the camera. He is currently filming a sequel to the box office hit, ‘Now You See Me,’ but Freeman knows that he doesn’t have much time left. Although the ‘Shawshank Redemption’ star is very healthy and fit for his age, he knows he is nearing the age where he will be quitting the entertainment business and passing away shortly after. So Freeman has decided to start recording narrative for a documentary about him after he dies.
The ‘Million Dollar Baby’ actor is spending his downtime on the set of ‘Now You See Me’ recording audio about his life. He has an audio setup in his trailer and has been working with Malik Bendelloul, the filmmaker behind the 2012 film, “Searching for Sugar Man.” Freeman doesn’t want anyone else doing the voiceover on a documentary about himself and that is why he has decided to do it himself.
The documentary, which is currently untitled, will be out shortly after Freeman passes away.
