‘Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans’ Documentary Bought by FilmRise for U.S.

FilmRise has acquired U.S. rights to the documentary “Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans” from Content Media.

The film, which premiered in May at the Cannes Film Festival, will be released in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 13 as well as day-and-date on VOD, download-to-own platforms, DVD and Blu-ray.

The film centers on McQueen’s efforts to make a movie about the 24-hour car race at Le Mans in France. The shoot was plagued by financial troubles, on-set rivalries and rumors of his affairs, and McQueen’s personal life began to unravel.

McQueen’s film “Le Mans” was released in 1971 and did not perform well at the box office. It contains mostly racing footage, with very little dialogue.

The movie includes interviews with his son Chad and first wife Neile along with never-before-seen production footage and private tape recordings of McQueen. The film is directed by Gabriel Clarke and John McKenna of Noah Films from Clarke’s script.

McKenna produced. Executive producers are Andrew Marriott, Bonamy Grimes, Barry Smith, Chad McQueen, David Green, David Reeder and Content’s Jamie Carmichael.

Steve McQueen: The Man and Le Mans” will be featured at the Deauville American Film Festival in September and the San Sebastian Film Festival in October.
