Michael Moore is teaming with former RADiUS founders and co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego, plus Alamo Drafthouse founder and CEO Tim League, to release his upcoming documentary, “Where to Invade Next.” The movie premiered to acclaim at the Toronto International Film Festival, and many have been wondering what distribution company the film would go to following its positive reception. The answer has now been provided in the form of a brand new distribution company from Quinn, Janego and League, though the company name and details of the new venture are being kept under wraps until a later date.
In an official statement, Moore describes his new distributor as a “cinematic Dream Team, consisting of three of this country’s most beloved film geeks and movie advocates, individuals who are much-admired by the indie filmmaking community. It is clear to me that they want to forge something new for a new century. They decided it was time to rethink the way movies are made, doing it with filmmakers who create their best work in a supportive environment, unfettered by a traditional studio system. I believe that Tom, Jason, and Tim, are poised to revolutionize film distribution by creating an entirely different movie-going experience for the audience.”
“Together with Michael Moore and his extraordinary new film we hope to remind Americans they have the inalienable right to laugh, especially in an election year,” added Quinn, Janego and League. “We’re thrilled about our new label and can’t think of a better film or filmmaker to launch with.” The company name and details of the new venture will be revealed at a later date.”
The doc follows Moore has he tries to figure out how to make America better by “invading” other countries to see how they operate and handle a wide range of social, economic and political issues. No official release date has been set. Watch the trailer above.
