BREAKING NEWS! Juliette Lewis prepares musical documentary.
According to an article found on Variety.com, Juliette is in the final stages of producing a documentary about her musical career and is set to premiere the film this January at Sundance!
Lewis partnered with Chris Maybach and Patrick Cunningham of Maybach Entertainment, producer of “Martha Marcy May Marlene,” and her manager Brandy Lewis to produce the doc. Saerom Kim and Saemi Kim are exec producing.
“I first heard her sing four years ago when I was at Cannes and I was blown away at how good she is,” Cunningham said in an interview this week following the premiere of “Martha Marcy” at the Toronto Film Festival.
He and his producing partners have culled about 400 hours of footage into a nearly finished cut of the yet-to-be-titled pic.
A quote from Juliette herself:
“I knew when I was 28 that I had to keep pushing myself into areas where I felt uncomfortable and exposed,” Lewis said in an interview in Toronto this week. “I’ve always been interested in living dangerously so going into music like this has sort of been my unleashing my love affair with my audiences — a joyful middle finger to the world. I have a real muscular voice that gets compared to AC/DC.
Lewis stressed that the film won’t be a vanity project, but rather an exploration of how performing live as a singer became a full-time primary career with extensive social networking. “In music, your fan base is everything,” she adds.
We are so excited for this project to be unveiled! We will bring you more information as soon as we get it! Rock on!
