Frankie Knuckles and Chicago house scene to be honored in upcoming film, ‘The Warehouse’
This March will mark the one-year anniversary of the passing of house legend Frankie Knuckles. In hopes to continue spreading his story and paying homage to the late talent, a film about the early Chicago house scene is in the works to release later this year. The Warehouse, described as a “tribute to the life story of The Warehouse owner Robert Williams and the legacy of Knuckles’s timeless artistry,” will be produced by Bob Teitel, Billy Dec, and Joe Shanahan.
“Growing up in Chicago, I always knew about The Warehouse and its ties to house/dance music. What amazes me is what started as a fad in a small Chicago club in the late seventies has evolved into the biggest genre of music in the world,” Teitel, of Man of Honor and Barbershop fame said of the forthcoming project.
The Warehouse has yet to receive an official release date, but stay tuned for more details to come.
