Cinedigm gets DVD, VOD on ‘Love, Marilyn’

Liz Garbus-helmed documentary marks 50th anni of icon's death

Cinedigm Entertainment Group has bought U.S. DVD, digital and VOD rights to Liz Garbus’ feature documentary “Love, Marilyn.”

Submarine previously sold U.S. TV rights to HBO Documentary Films at the Toronto Film Festival and has also sold all Canadian rights to Mongrel Media and airline rights to Jaguar Distribution.

HBO will qualify the movie for this year’s Academy consideration with a run in December in New York and Los Angeles. It will also be the opening-night film at the upcoming Hamptons Film Festival.

“Love, Marilyn” had its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival and a gala screening at Toronto. Film is written, directed and produced by Garbus and produced by Stanley Buchthal and Amy Hobby. Executive producers are Anne Carey, Olivier Courson, Harold Van Lier and Enrique Steiger.

“Love, Marilyn” coincides with the 50th anni of Monroe’s death and features footage, audiotapes, handwritten letters, diaries, notes, poems, journals and notebooks. Interviews and archival footage features Arthur Miller, Joe DiMaggio, Amy Greene, Molly Haskell, Truman Capote, Norman Mailer and Elia Kazan.

Deal with Cinedigm was negotiated by David Koh, Josh Braun and Dan Braun of Submarine Entertainment along with Stanley Buchthal of Diamond Girl Production LLC on behalf of the producers and Emily Rothschild and Susan Margolin for Cinedigm.
