Boston Marathon to get 1st documentary

BOSTON America's marquee marathon is ready for its close-up.

'Boston,' the first feature-length documentary film about the Boston Marathon, is in the works. Its creators say the movie will go well beyond the 2013 bombings to retrace the iconic footrace's first steps in 1897.

'Over the years, the Boston Marathon has had so many extraordinary stories of people achieving and accomplishing things,' said producer Megan Williams, an Oscar-nominated filmmaker. 'It's like looking at cultural and social change over the last century through the lens of this major sporting event.'
