Anthony Bourdain was a huge fixture in the travel sphere (in addition to being a prolific author, noted chef and outspoken activist). During the course of his career he hosted numerous travel-focused television shows, including The Layover and Parts Unknown, which introduced his audience to new places and new foods and inspired people around the world to find adventures of their own.

In the wake of his death in June of this year we’ve seen an outpouring of written tributes and TV show marathons. Now, CNN and Bourdain’s Parts Unknown production company, Zero Point Zero, have announced that a new feature-length documentary, which is being touted as “the definitive Bourdain feature documentary,” about his life and work is in the making.

CNN’s executive vice president for talent and content Amy Entelis says, “We want to make it perfect. We want to make it exquisite for Tony. We want to do him justice.”

Details are few and far between, but the film is slated to be released “as early as 2019,” first on the festival circuit, then in theaters, and eventually on television on CNN.

In the meantime, you can catch the 12th and final season of Parts Unknown, which Bourdain was in the middle of filming in France at the time of his death, this fall on CNN.
