Lions, ‘Grizzly’ and Herzog – oh my!

Doc makes Natural History

NEW YORK — After a packed screening of Lions Gate’s docu “Grizzly Man” at New York’s Museum of Natural History Wednesday, German filmmaker Werner Herzog was joined by producer Jewel Palovak, bear expert Barrie Gilbert and moderator Kurt Andersen to discuss the pic.

“Grizzly” portrays researcher Timothy Treadwell, who lived with Alaskan grizzlies every summer for 13 years before he was killed by one in 2003.

A project about Treadwell was attractive to Lions Gate, according to worldwide marketing prez John Hegeman, because “Timothy highlights what our company is about — an alternative thought process and an alternative experience.”
