Report: Magic Johnson feature documentary in the works

XTR, H.wood Media, NSV and Delirio Films collaborating with 'unprecedented access'

Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls recently had their “Last Dance” revisited in an epic 10-part documentary, and it looks like Earvin “Magic” Johnson will be the next NBA subject to earn feature treatment.

According to Variety, XTR, H.wood Media, NSV and Delirio Films are collaborating, with “unprecedented access” to the Los Angeles Lakers great. The film will reportedly incorporate archival footage of Johnson, alongside interviews spanning his on-court success and adjustment to achieve off-court as well.

“In these unprecedented times we need films that celebrate heroes more than ever,” said XTR CEO Bryn Mooser in a statement. “As one of the most legendary, hardworking and resilient public figures of our time, Magic Johnson’s accomplishments both on and off the court are something worth spotlighting to the world and we’re excited to tell that story and work closely with him and NSV to take viewers inside his remarkable journey.”
