Silverdocs "Plimpton! Starring George Plimpton as Himself"

Laemmle/Zeller Films has acquired rights to “Plimpton! Starring George Plimpton as Himself” from directors Tom Bean and Luke Poling. The company plans an early spring theatrical release.

The documentary was built from four years of interviews with the late writer and editor, plus Plimpton’s own archival material, including audio and video that allowed the filmmakers to use Plimpton’s own voice as narrator. The film had its world premiere at the Silver Docs Film Festival in June.
