A documentary about Lil Peep is reportedly on its way, executive produced by Terrence Malick. The New York Times revealed the news in a feature detailing plans for posthumous Lil Peep releases. Malick, who directed Badlands, The Thin Red Line, and The Tree of Life, is a friend of Peep’s family, and the documentary may come with a new soundtrack too.
The feature also explores Lil Peep’s upcoming album Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2, his first posthumous full-length release, as well as potential collaborations with iLoveMakonnen, Diplo, and Harry Fraud.
It also details the history of “Faling Down”, the controversial Lil Peep/XXXtentacion collaboration put together following both artists’ deaths. The original version, “Sunlight On Your Skin”, was recorded with iLoveMakonnen and producer Smokeasac, and although members of Lil Peep’s circle objected to its release, saying that Peep disapproved of XXXtentacion due to the abuse allegations against him, the track was ultimately approved by Lil Peep’s mother, Liza Womack, after she spoke to XXX’s mother Cleopatra Bernard.
