Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s documentary Linda Ronstadt: The Sound of My Voice, which profiles the 10-time Grammy-winning singer, has landed at Greenwich Entertainment and 1091.
A September theatrical release is planned for the CNN Films project after Greenwich and 1091 jointly picked up North American rights. The film was co-financed by PCH Films and CNN Films, which produced the doc and picked up broadcast TV rights for North America.
The Sound of My Voice premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
“We’re excited to partner with Rob, Jeffrey, James, Michele and CNN to bring this powerful documentary to audiences across the country,” Danielle DiGiacomo, senior vp acquisitions and strategic partnerships for 1091, and Ed Arentz, co-managing director of Greenwich, said Monday in a statement.
The distribution deal was negotiated by DiGiacomo, Arentz and Cinetic Media’s Eric Sloss on behalf of the filmmakers, and by Stacey Wolf, vp business affairs for CNN Worldwide, for CNN.
