Sony Pictures Classics Picks Up Rights to 'Neil Young Journeys'
The Jonathan Demme-directed film had its world premiere at the Toronto film festival.
Sony Pictures Classics has acquired worldwide rights excluding Latin America to Neil Young Journeys from Shakey Pictures and Clinica Estetico. Jonathan Demme directed the music documentary, which had its world premiere at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
Journeys follows the iconic rocker on a road trip from his Ontario hometown to a pair of shows in Toronto, with performances of songs from his most recent album, Le Noise, presented in full. Demme directed two previous Young-centric films, Neil Young Heart of Gold and Neil Young Trunk Show.
The WME-repped Demme produced Journeys with Elliot Rabinowitz and Declan Quinn. SPC negotiated the acquisition with Young’s manager, Elliot Roberts.
Sony Pictures Classics most recently released Higher Ground and Take Shelter. It has the films A Dangerous Method and Carnage forthcoming this fall. SPC previously released the Demme-directed films Jimmy Carter Man From Plains and Rachel Getting Married.
