Cannes: IM Global Financing Clive Davis Documentary

IM Global will fully finance and handle worldwide sales for the documentary “Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives.”

The announcement was made Thursday by IM Global Founder and CEO Stuart Ford and IM Global Music President David Schulhof. WME Global will sell domestic distribution rights to the film.

The project is based on Davis’ 2013 autobiography. It will be directed by Chris Perkel and produced by Scott Free Productions’ Michael Bernstein. Ridley Scott and Mary Lisio are executive producers along with Ford and Schulhof.

Davis became president of Columbia Records at the age of 35. He signed Donovan, who became a folk-rock star through Columbia’s Epic label, early on in his career.

Davis played a key role in the careers of  Bruce Springsteen, Whitney Houston, Santana, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Aerosmith, Simon & Garfunkel, Janis Joplin, Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears, The Kinks, The Grateful Dead and The Eurythmics.

From 1967 to 1973, Davis was the president of Columbia Records. He was the founder and president of Arista Records from 1975 through 2000 before heading RCA Music Group. He’s currently chief creative officer of Sony Music Entertainment.

Clive Davis’ journey in music defines the last 50 years of contemporary music like no one else,” said Ford and Schulhof. “His compelling story is told through never-before-seen archival footage and Chris’ amazing and insightful interviews with the most culture-defining artists of our lifetime. “

Davis has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He also received The Recording Academy’s lifetime achievement award.

The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
