The deal with the film's directors for the worldwide rights comes ahead of a Venice bow for the film about the famed helmer of 'Scarface' and 'The Untouchables.'

A24 on Wednesday said it was partnering with Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow to release their documentary De Palma worldwide.

The film, which chronicles a decade of conversations between the directors, is debuting at the Venice Film Festival on Wednesday, with De Palma attending. The director of Scarface, Mission: Impossible and The Untouchables also is being feted with Venice's Glory to the Filmmaker Award.

The De Palma doc, directed and produced by Baumbach and Paltrow, with Scott Rudin and Eli Bush executive producing, will play next at the New York Film Festival. A24 plans a 2016 release for the picture.
