Anyone wondering just how 'The Who' came to creation should be delighted at the news that the documentary "Lambert & Stamp," which recently premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews, has just been acquired by Sony Pictures Classics. The distributor has just bought all North American, Australian and NZ, Asian, Eastern European and Russian rights to the film. 

"Lambert & Stamp," which marks James D. Cooper's directorial debut, chronicles the lives of Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert, two New Wave filmmakers struggling to make their next film together who come across the then-unknown band "The Who," eventually turning them not only into the perfect subject for a movie, but also into one of the most iconic bands in the history of music. 

“'Lambert & Stamp' is the greatest untold story in rock. The movie captures a very unlikely partnership and the hailstorm of creativity that comes with it. Sony Pictures Classics is truly the ideal partner for distributing the film which I've been honored to make, and for the legacy with which I've been entrusted,” said James D. Cooper.

The film is a Harms/Cooper, Motorcinema, Inc. production that, alongside Lambert and Stamp, features Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey and Terence Stamp. The deal was negotiated with W. Wilder Knight II and Anne Atkinson of Pryor Cashman on behalf of the filmmakers with Sony Pictures Classics.
