Earlier this year, we learned that Green Day was prepping not one, not two, but three new albums for release between this September and January 2013, and now it appears that the multi-tasking group is also readying two documentaries.  Tim Lynch (producer of Green Day: Bullet in a Bible) and Tim Wheeler are creating one documentary that covers the making of Green Day’s new albums, titled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tre!, and a second documentary will be made up of vintage footage from their pre-Dookie days.  Regarding the making-of documentary, Billie Joe Armstrong tells Billboard that it won’t be a by-the-numbers pic:

“It’s not going to be the sitting down, head shot of me going ‘we started out blah blah blah.’ We wanted to get into lifestyles of rock’n’roll and playing rock n roll and letting the story kind of tell itself rather than create revisionist (history).”

Hit the jump for more.

Per Billboard (via The Playlist), the band is hoping that Lynch and Wheeler film will be ready in time for the Sundance Film Festival in January, but there’s no word on when we’d see the second film.  Sam Bayer, who directed a number of Green Day’s videos, is behind that archive footage pic.  All in all, fans of Green Day won’t be lacking for material over the next several months.  ¡Uno!, the first of the three albums, hits stores on September 25th.  Green Day is also developing a feature film based on the Broadway adaptation of “American Idiot.”
