Teen Spirit” was produced by Fred Berger (“La La Land”) and executive produced by Jamie Bell.

Interscope Records, which handled the soundtrack on “La La Land,” co-produced with Automatik and Blank Tape, and will release the official soundtrack featuring contemporary pop songs. LD Entertainment bought the rights from the producers during the Toronto Film Festival.

Mickey Liddell, CEO of LD Entertainment, said, “This is the perfect film to reunite us with our friends at Bleecker Street. Max’s directorial debut is nothing short of amazing… He is a true visionary. Audiences are going to come back to see Elle Fanning’s magnetic performance again and again.”

The film’s U.S. deal was co-repped by CAA and Mister Smith Entertainment, which is also selling “Teen Spirit” internationally and co-financing.
