‘Fight Scene’ of When the Wailers Band Broke-up Removed from ‘Bob Marley: One Love’ Biopic During Final Editing

As he continues to share details about the making of the newly released Bob Marley: One Love biopic, Ziggy Marley revealed that a scene of his father and his bandmates having a fight and breaking up was removed.

Ziggy is the executive producer of the film and helped work on it behind the scenes to deliver an authentic representation of Bob Marley and Jamaican culture.

During an interview, Ziggy expressed that while he had ideas of what he wanted parts of the film to be like, he remained open to suggestions from the other creatives working on the movie.

Speaking with Billboard, Ziggy explained that while editing a film, it reveals what it wants to be, and so there are scenes that did not make the final edit. Ziggy expressed that those scenes did not fit the overall vision of the movie.

In addition to a scene depicting Bob meeting the members of the Wailers, Ziggy said they also had to remove a scene of the group’s breakup and fight.

“We had a scene where di Wailers broke up. They had a fight. Dat was one dat was like, we have to, but it just never work ina di architect.” Ziggy stated.

Ziggy added that deleted scenes will be available for audiences to watch when the DVD of the movie is released. His father and the Wailers, comprised of Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer, formed the band in the 1960s but later parted ways in the 1970s, reportedly due to various differences and grievances over label treatment.

Discussing how he chose what parts of his father’s story he wanted to share, Ziggy said the important thing was to show his father’s selflessness and the artiste discovering his purpose.
