iW NEWS | Magnolia Gets "Bigger, Stronger, Faster*"

By Indiewire | Indiewire February 27, 2008 at 9:39AM

Magnolia Pictures has announced a deal for worldwide rights to Christopher Bell's timely steroids doc, "Bigger, Stronger, Faster," which debuted last month at the Sundance Film Festival. Magnolia will release the film in theaters later this year, followed by an HDNET broadcast. "I love this movie!" said Mark Cuban, owner of Magnolia, Landmark Theaters, HDNET, and the Dallas Mavericks, "It's informative, fascinating and hysterical - all the things a movie about steroids should be. You can't miss this one if you are a sports fan." Cinetic Media brokered the deal with Tom Quinn, Dori Begley and Jason Janego from Magnolia. In a recent interview with indieWIRE, filmmaker Bell -- whose own brothers use steriods -- wondered, Is it really un-American to use steroids? Or is there nothing more American than doing whatever it takes to be number one? We are, after all, a country that defines itself in the superlative: we are the biggest, strongest, fastest nation in the world -- the last super power." [Eugene Hernandez]
