Intermedia makes music

'Sky is Crying,' untitled Who pic in pipeline

Intermedia has debuted a new music division, Intermedia Music, designed to exploit music from all of Intermedia’s visual entertainment. Division also will develop additional music based on motion picture projects that it will release through its own music label, which will be launched with separate funding.

The new division will be headed by Intermedia’s Will Evans and staffed by music supervisor Joel Sill and Trinifold’s Bill Curbishley and Robert Rosenberg.

Tuning up slate

Music-based pics currently in development at Intermedia include the Shooting Gallery co-production “The Sky is Crying,” the life story of blues guitarist Elmore James that will be produced by Curbishley and Shooting Gallery’s Phil Carson. Intermedia also is developing a film on Keith Moon, the late drummer of the Who. Pic will be produced by Who singer Roger Daltrey and Bill Gerber.

In 1974, Curbishley launched Trinifold, a shingle that managed the Who in addition to Judas Priest, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page.

Sill is a former VP of music for Warner Communications and Paramount Pictures and worked on the music for such films as “Cast Away,” “What Lies Beneath,” “Contact,” “The Firm” and “The Fabulous Baker Boys.”
