Norton’s Obama Doc Skips Fest Route

Norton's Obama Doc Skips Fest Route


Producer Edward Norton considered taking the fall fest route with his By the People: The Election of Barack Obama doc, which has been filming since 2006. But Amy Rice and Alicia Sams’ much-anticipated film about Obama’s presidential run will quietly bypass the Venice and Toronto fests this year in favor of a short August Oscar-qualifying run in LA and NY and a splashy HBO event launch in September. Norton is repped by the new WME combine run by Ari Emanuel, brother of Obama’s chief-of-staff, Ram Emamuel. This should be a big must-see.
