Juliette Lewis’ band, Juliette and the Licks broke up in 2009 after the actress said she needed to grow as an artist. Since then Lewis has continued to act and released an album with her new venture the New Romantiques, but the cult following of the Licks has been itching for the band to return for a new album.
Though that’s not likely to happen, Lewis has announced she is going to direct a documentary about the Licks. It will document the band’s life on the road and the relationships that formed in the band and subsequently were strained thanks to heavy touring.
Lewis hopes to have the film ready to show at Sundance next January, but hasn’t announced if she would enter it into competition.
