Twenty feet from Stardom

North American rights to Sundance's popular opening-night film “Twenty Feel From Stardom,” which has earned the best audience buzz of the festival so far, have gone to RADiUS-TWC. RADiUS presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego are planning a late summer theatrical release.

The doc, directed by Morgan Neville, looks at the numerous and talented --and unsung--back-up singers who have performed onstage with some of the last fifty years' biggest names in music, from the Rolling Stones to Talking Heads.

Quinn and Janego state:

“We were overwhelmed by this beautiful film that focuses on the underdog — these incredible artists who, until now, have been largely unknown." They negotiated the deal with Submarine's Josh Braun and David Koh on behalf of the filmmakers. “We've been coming to Sundance for more than 15 years and we've rarely, if ever, seen an audience reaction like we did last night.”

RADiUS-TWC is the Weinstein Co.’s multi-platform label has had a mixed performance record and recently released “Bachelorette,” acquired at the 2012 Sundance festival. The film did far better on VOD than it did in theatrical. Later this year it will release “Only God Forgives” and Errol Morris’ “The Unknown Known."
