Brian De Palma Documentary Acquired by A24

A24 has acquired distribution rights to the Brian De Palma documentary “De Palma,” which will make its world premiere Wednesday at the Venice Film Festival.

De Palma will be in Venice to receive the festival’s Jaeger-LeCoultre Glory to the Filmmaker Award. The movie will also play at the New York Film Festival at the end of the month.

“De Palma” was directed and produced by Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush served as executive producers. A24 plans a 2016 release.

De Palma’s career has included “Carrie,” “Dressed to Kill,” “Blow Out,” “Scarface,” “The Untouchables” and “Mission: Impossible.” The doc covers De Palma’s singular approach to the craft of filmmaking and his experiences navigating the film business.

“Noah and Jake have not only created a funny, nuanced and deeply insightful portrait of one of the world’s most masterful and uncompromising filmmakers, but they have made a film which explores the very essence of filmmaking, and presents a unique and enormously entertaining perspective on both the art and the business of movies,” A24 said in a statement.

UTA Independent Film Group negotiated the deal with A24 on behalf of the filmmakers. Baumbach and Paltrow are represented by UTA.
