Martin Scorsese appears to have been bitten by the aviation bug. Following “The Aviator,” last year’s biopic on Howard Hughes which garnered 11 Academy Awards, Scorsese is planning to make a documentary about Airbus.
The filmmaker will co-direct a feature documentary about the European company, which recently unveiled the huge A380 aircraft. His directing partner will be Jose Luis Lopez-Linares, a Spanish cinematographer who has directed several movies, including one about the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca.
The Airbus documentary is expected to draw parallels between the building of planes and cathedrals, focusing on a factory worker, an engineer and an architect.
