Weinstein boutique label RADiUS-TWC has acquired both worldwide rights and remake rights for director Al Hicks' music doc "Keep On Keepin' On," winner of the Audience Award at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. Do we have the next "20 Feet From Stardom" in our midst?

Produced by Paula DuPre' Pesman ("The Cove," "Chasing Ice") and seven-time Oscar nominee Quincy Jones, the film also picked up Tribeca's Best New Documentary Director prize for first-timer Hicks. 

Funded partly on Kickstarter, the film spans four years in the lives of jazz legend and pioneer Clark Terry and Justin Kaulflin, a blind piano prodigy. As Kaulflin prepares for a career-altering competition, Terry's health begins to wane, and these pivotal moments become the center of an inspirational and iconic story.

The acquisition of "Keep On Keepin' On" was inked by RADiUS EVP Dan Guando and co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego. RADiUS has been busily picking up films off the festival circuit this season, from "The One I Love" starring Elisabeth Moss to Mark Duplass and Jason Blum's "Creep" franchise.
