A documentary on Wire is currently in production.

The film, to be titled People In A Film, "aims to express the very essence of Wire – the personalities, their music, their worldview, their history and their future," according to a press release. It's being put together by the band themselves with the help of director and producer Malcolm Boyle and writer and producer Graham Duff.

Initial shooting for the film has apparently begun, featuring footage of the band at work in the Rockfield Studios recording a new album, as well as in-depth interviews with Colin Newman, Graham Lewis, Robert Grey, Matthew Simms and Bruce Gilbert.

A crowdfunding campaign has been launched to help see the production through until the end. You can support it here, where you can also find out more about the documentary. You can view a trailer for the film above.
