Ryan O'Neal making Farrah documentary

Ryan O'Neal is working on a documentary following the aftermath of the death of his long-term partner Farrah Fawcett, who passed away last June after losing her battle with cancer

Ryan O'Neal is making a second documentary about Farrah Fawcett's cancer battle.

The actor has commissioned a producer to work on a "tribute" show to his long-term partner - who died last June - and a film crew has been in the 'Charlie's Angels' star's home state of Texas to shoot a series of one-on-one interviews with her friends and family.

Ryan's publicist, Arnold Robinson, said: "My understanding is that he is collecting recollections/memories of Farrah from her friends and family for archival purposes."

It is believed the producer of the documentary is Stephanie Lynn, who has regularly been pictured with Ryan since Farrah's death.

It is unclear if anyone who was involved in 'Farrah's Story' - which chronicled the actress' fight with cancer and was broadcast on US TV network NBC - is also working on the project.

A source told website Radar Online: "It will take a completely different direction to the first documentary."

In September, Stephanie placed an advert in the Hollywood Reporter newspaper saying: "Looking for candid footage of Farrah for upcoming one-hour tribute."

The documentary will also incorporate photographs taken by Samuel Lippke at 62-year-old Farrah's funeral service, which was held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, a Roman Catholic church in Los Angeles.

In a statement posted on his website, Samuel said: "I had the honour of photographing an amazing woman's funeral.

"I can't write much due to discretion rules and I can't post images that I took... all of my images go straight to Ryan and no-one else.

"I photographed some extremely touching moments, bagpipes, tears, rosary beads, eulogies, it was beautiful."
