Martin Scorsese working on book magazine documentary

Hollywood director Martin Scorsese is preparing to debut a new documentary about acclaimed literary publication the New York Review of Books.

The Goodfellas filmmaker's new project tells the story behind the journal, which features discussions on art, science, politics and literature.

The film features interviews with famed contributors including writer/filmmaker Susan Sontag, linguist Noam Chomsky and late writer Norman Mailer.

Scorsese plans to debut the yet-to-be-titled movie at the Berlin Film Festival in Germany in February (14), even though the documentary is still a work in progress.

The Oscar-winning auteur has previously put together documentaries on director Elia Kazan and late Beatles star George Harrison, while he is also working on a film about former President Bill Clinton.
