Amazon Prime Video have confirmed that they are set to release a documentary on iconic former Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson.
'Sir Alex Ferguson: Never Give In' will be released on May 29 on Amazon's Prime Video service and will also have a run cinemas, should they reopen again. Universal have also secured the rights to the documentary to broadcast it in North America.
The documentary has been produced by DNA Films, best known for Oscar-winning movies such as The Last King of Scotland and Ex Machina, in collaboration with Passion Pictures, who produced Oscar-winning documentaries One Day in September and Searching for Sugarman.
The film has been directed by Scottish managerial legend's son, Jason and it will cover Ferguson's childhood in Glasgow, his playing career at the likes of Queens Park, Dunfermline and Falkirk before his ascendancy to becoming one of greatest managers the game has ever seen with his near 27 year-long career at Manchester United.
It was first announced that a documentary would be made on Ferguson in 2018 and the film was made during his recovery of the life-threatening brain haemorrhage he suffered in the same year.
The documentary will also feature interviews with Ryan Giggs, Eric Cantona, Gordon Strachan, Archie Knox and Ferguson's own wife and kids.
“Losing my memory was my biggest fear when I suffered a brain haemorrhage in 2018," started Ferguson. "In the making of this film I was able to revisit the most important moments of my life, good and bad. Having my son Jason direct this film has ensured an honest and intimate account."
