It’s official. My first major theatrical project has launched!
With Convergent Media (formerly Social Construct Media), and with Blink TV, we are co-producing BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB – ADIOS.
This feature film has been green-lit, with full financing and U.S. distribution from leading independent film studio Broad Green Pictures. Academy Award nominated film director Lucy Walker is on board. Mister Smith Entertainment is handling international sales.
From the press release: “With the band on their final and hugely ambitious world tour, the five original band members take us on an intimate journey, revealing their personal and professional highs and lows since 1999, while remembering the infamous and beloved band members no longer with us. The tour will culminate in a series of spectacular homecoming concerts in Havana. Set against the unique and unprecedented political, social and cultural backdrop of this rapidly evolving time in Cuban history, this film will cement the enduring legacy of the band, the musicians and the music at the end of an era. Principal photography is slated to begin in July 2015, with theatrical release targeted in 2016.”
Here is the Hollywood Reporter story that puts is as the ‘4th buzziest title at Cannes’!
