Oasis Music Documentary Attracts International Buyers

Andrew Orr’s Independent Film Sales has closed multiple distribution deals on the untitled documentary about the British band Oasis, which was introduced to buyers at this month’s American Film Market.

The film will document the band’s journey from 1991, when Noel Gallagher joined his brother Liam’s group. Oasis’ first album, “Definitely Maybe,” became the fastest-selling debut album in British history, and the band went on to sell 70 million albums. The filmmakers were given extensive access by the band, and also drew on never-before-seen archive material.

The territory sales that have been completed following negotiations at AFM include Ascot Elite (Germany), Lucky Red (Italy), Madman (Australia and New Zealand), and D Films (Canada).

Other buyers include Edko (Hong Kong), Ascot Elite (Switzerland), Cine Lux (Korea), Movie Matters (Thailand) and MovieCloud (Taiwan). A sale to Japan will be announced shortly.

These are in addition to the U.K. sale to eOne/Lorton Distribution, which was revealed earlier.

The film is to be directed by Mat Whitecross, and is being produced by James Gay Rees, Fiona Neilson and Simon Halfon. Asif Kapadia, the director of “Amy,” is on board as executive producer.

Whitecross’ credits include “The Road to Guantanamo,” which won a Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival, and “The Shock Doctrine,” which was based on Naomi Klein’s book. Both films were co-directed by Michael Winterbottom. Whitecross also directed “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll,” a biopic about punk-rock star Ian Dury, starring Andy Serkis.
