Iggy And The Stooges ‘Gimme Danger’ Hits More Theaters


Gimme Danger, the new Iggy and the Stooges documentary by director Jim Jarmusch, hits more theaters TODAY, November 4: Iggy Pop and Jarmusch spoke recently with Billboard about the film:

Iggy, you asked Jim to make this film. Why him?

Jim Jarmusch: That’s what I keep asking him!

Iggy Pop: If I could get him to do it, he was going to bring out important and beautiful things about us that we in the group wouldn’t have ever thought of — we have the wrong perspective. We needed someone with intelligence and skill who also knew the group and came to the shows — that’s who Jim is. He’s a final-cut director, he controls his own work, and that’s now really rare. My tactic was ask him once, not try to convince him. I wasn’t going to write an email with “10 reasons why.” (Laughs.)
