Fortissimo Films has taken worldwide sales rights (excluding North America and Japan) to Every Little Step: The Journey Of a Phenomenon from Endgame Entertainment.

The deal was negotiated between Fortissimo's co-chairman Michael J. Werner and Greg Schenz of Endgame Entertainment. Fortissimo will start pre-sales at next week's American Film Market.

The documentary follows the journey of A Chorus Line from initial idea in the 1970s to its current Broadway revival.

James D Stern and Adam Del Deo of Endgame co-direct and produce, with John Breglio serving as executive producer.

Stern and Del Deo previously worked on documentaries The Year Of The Yao and So Goes The Nation. Stern is also a Broadway producer.

Werner said: 'When Jim and Adam first described this project to us, we knew that they would be producing a film with a great story, class, charm, music, and great commercial potential -- and we had to be involved. We are thrilled to be working with Endgame on this up-close look at one of the world's most endearing musicals.'

Stern added: 'A Chorus Line, which has played in over 40 countries and in hundreds of languages, has resonated with audiences since its debut in 1975. We know that Fortissimo Films is the ideal partner to bring this documentary of universal struggle and triumph to audiences worldwide.'
