Fans of Anthony Bourdain still aren’t over the beloved chef’s 2018 death. His passion for food, travel, and the world in general was inspiring and contagious, and his kind heart earned him supporters and admirers from across the world. To make those fans feel a little closer to Bourdain, a new documentary is in the works that will peer into the “uncommon life of the late storyteller, explorer, and chef.”
- The documentary is being made by a total pro. Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain is being headed up by Academy Award-winning director and producer Morgan Neville. Bourdain is in good hands with Neville, who’s known for biographical movies like Won’t You Be My Neighbor? and 20 Feet from Stardom.
- It’s due to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Those who want to see the Anthony Bourdain documentary before it hits theaters will need to attend the Tribeca Film Festival, where it’s due to screen for the very first time on June 11, 2021, just after the three-year anniversary of his death.
- After it leaves theaters, it’ll be available to stream. Roadrunner will eventually head to HBO Max and CNN, so if you don’t get a chance to see it at a local movie theater, you’ll soon be able to stream it from the comfort of your home. The dates for the streaming releases has not yet been announced, to stay tuned.
- If you’re missing Bourdain, he does have a new book out. World Travel: An Irreverent Guide hit stores earlier this month and uses a combination of interview quotes, TV show material, and other documents to lay out an unconventional but incredibly enjoyable travel guide to beautiful locations around the world in the way only Bourdain ever could. It’s well worth the read and will make you feel a bit like Bourdain is still around.
