A documentary about Eric Clapton being directed by Lili Fini Zanuck is in its formative stages. A Life in 12 Bars will also get guidance from producer John Battes (Searching for Sugarman). Zanuck's film will focus on EC's love for traditional blues as a basis for much of the music he has made during his remarkable career. The director says the film that chronicles his life in music is "...indeed a melancholic victory lap, full of nostalgic myth, but always musically potent, always looking to the future. Despite the fact that his path is strewn with tragedies, addiction and loss, he never fails to regain his bearings and continue to serve what he holds dearest: his music."
