Bob Marley: One Love is an upcoming American biographical musical drama film directed by Reinaldo Marcus Green and written by Green, Terence Winter, Frank E. Flowers, and Zach Baylin, from a story by Winter and Flowers. It is based on the life of reggae singer and songwriter Bob Marley, from his rise to fame up until his death in 1981. The film stars Kingsley Ben-Adir as Marley, alongside Lashana Lynch as Rita Marley, and James Norton as Chris Blackwell.

In June 2018, it was announced that Paramount Pictures were developing a biographical drama film based on the life of singer and songwriter Bob Marley, with Marley’s son Ziggy Marley serving as a producer. In March 2021, Reinaldo Marcus Green had been hired to direct, with Zach Baylin (who wrote Green’s 2021 film King Richard), Frank E. Flowers, and Terence Winter writing the screenplay. In February 2022, Kingsley Ben-Adir was cast as the titular character, after an extensive, yearlong and globe-spanning search by the studio. In August, Lashana Lynch had joined the cast playing as Bob’s wife Rita Marley. In February 2023, Michael Gandolfini, Nadine Marshall, James Norton and Anthony Welsh had joined the cast in undisclosed roles.

Principal photography began in December 2022 in London and wrapped in April 2023. The film’s title, Bob Marley: One Love, was announced by producer Ziggy Marley at CinemaCon that same month.
Bob Marley: One Love is scheduled to be released theatrically in the United States on February 14, 2024 by Paramount Pictures. It was originally scheduled to be released on January 12, 2024.
