‘Studio 54’

UK documentary specialist Dogwoof has locked a series of deals across two of the titles on its Cannes sales slate.

Matt Tyrnauer’s Studio 54, about how two young men, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, conquered New York’s club scene with their pulsating, hedonistic club, has sold to Scandinavia (Edge Entertainment), Australia and New Zealand (Mad Man), Germany and Austria (Weltkino) and Italy (BIM).

An Altimeter Films and Passion Pictures production, Studio 54 was produced by John Battsek and Corey Reeser, and executive produced by Robert Sharenow, Elaine Frontaine-Bryant and Molly Thompson for A&E Indie Films.

Separately, Dogwoof has also scored deals on Amazon Studios production Generation Wealth, which premiered at this year’s Sundance and has now sold to Australia and New Zealand (MadMan) and Scandinavia, Baltics and Iceland (Non Stop).

Directed by Lauren Greenfield (The Queen Of Versailles), the film is an expose journey into the global boom-and-bust economy, the corrupted American Dream and the human costs of capitalism. It will be in released in July by Amazon Studios in the US and by Dogwoof in the UK.

Dogwoof’s sales slate also includes 2018 Cannes Classics Selection The Eyes Of Orson Welles from director Mark Cousins.
