UIP rocks with doc on pop star Williams

Pic focuses on 'travelling circus' of Euro tour, concert footage

LONDON — United Intl. Pictures has picked up U.K. theatrical rights to “Nobody Someday,” a rockumentary about Brit pop star Robbie Williams.

Doc follows Williams, one of the U.K.’s most popular and extrovert performers, through the highs and lows of his recent European tour.

Pic is directed by Brian Hill, best known for ground-breaking TV docs such as “Sylvania Waters.”

Around a third of the 90-minute film is concert footage, and the rest, in the words of the producers, deals with the “travelling circus” of touring.

It was produced by IE Music, which manages Williams and struck the deal with UIP’s head of intl. acquisitions Marion Pilowsky.

There was also strong interest in an all-rights deal from Momentum Pictures and Pathe Pictures. But IE Music decided to split the rights between UIP, EMI for video and Channel 4 for TV.
