iW NEWS | WMI Continues Selling "Young @ Heart"

William Morris Independent is touting its work on agency clients director Stephen Walker and producer Sally George, selling their popular doc, “Young @ Heart.” After brokering a North American deal with Fox Searchlight back in June at the Los Angeles Film Festival, WMI broke with its tradition of working with overseas sales agents to sell the film to Jean Labadie’s Le Pacte in France, Rialto in Australia/New Zealand, Senator Films in Germany, and Pix/Avex Group in Japan. The film, initially conceived for Channel Four in the UK, was re-tooled for theaters. It showcases an aging chorus of crowd-pleasers who sing The Clash and Coldplay. [Eugene Hernandez]
