Orion grabs ‘Hitchcock’

Orion Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to “Storefont Hitchcock,” a concert performance film starring Brit singer-songwriter Robyn Hitchcock and directed by Jonathan Demme.

The film was lensed the week of Dec. 9 in Gotham, with Hitchcock performing in a downtown storefront before a live audience. Pic will be released theatrically by Orion in fall 1997.

Demme’s company, Clinica Estetico, has just announced a producing deal with Universal. But Demme’s ties with Orion go back over four helming assignments, including the five-time Academy Award-winner, “Silence of the Lambs.” Others are “Philadelphia,” “Melvin and Howard,” and the Talking Heads concert film, “Stop Making Sense.”

Clinica Estetico recently completed “Ulee’s Gold” for Orion, with Victor Nunez helming. Pic is a Sundance Film Festival selection for the Centerpiece Premiere sidebar.
