Focus Features has set a July 16 theatrical release for Morgan Neville’s Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain, before the documentary about the late celebrity chef and TV host bows on CNN and streams on HBO Max.
The film is directed by the Oscar-winning filmmaker behind 20 Feet From Stardom and Won’t You Be My Neighbor? The feature will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 11.
Bourdain carved a career as a chef, writer and host, documenting his travels on the CNN series Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, which won 12 Emmys over its five-year run, as well as a Peabody. He was revered and renowned for his authentic approach to food, culture and travel.
Bourdain was found dead in a French hotel in June 2018, and the cause of death was later confirmed to be suicide. His death sent a shock wave through the entertainment world, and renewed broader conversations around mental health.
CNN Films and HBO Max executive produced Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain. Neville and Caitrin Rogers produced under the Tremolo Productions banner.
