Pitchfork have reported that Cat Power will be narrating an upcoming Janis Joplin documentary. Directed by Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil, 2006), the film – simply titled Janis – is expected to premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September. In particular, Chan Marshall (the real name of Cat Power) will be reading letters from the legendary singer.

The reveal came from Berg, who said:

"After attempting to get this film off the ground for 7 years, I am ecstatic that the film is finally ready to be seen. This has been a labor of love and I cannot wait to share Janis’ unique, intimate story with the world. Chan Marshall (Cat Power) has delivered a beautiful, introspective voice of Janis by reading her letters."
