iW NEWS | Fortissimo Gets On Gibney's "Bus"

Fortissimo Films has acquired the worldwide rights (except the UK and US) to Jigsaw Film‘s new production, “Magic Bus.” “Bus” will be directed by Alex Gibney, and chart the story of the infamous, LSD-fueled bus journey of avant-garde author Ken Kesey and his cohorts across America. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Alex Gibney and [the film’s producer] Will Clarke on what no doubt will be a fascinating cinematic trip through the beginnings of the hippie and counter-culture movement that shook the US and the world set against the wonderful music that moved those times,” said Fortissimo EVP Nicole Mackey in a statement. The film is partly financed and is being executive produced by Phoenix Wiley, and is expected to be completed next year. [Peter Knegt]
