'Neil Young Journeys': Sony Pictures Classics nabs Jonathan Demme doc
Sony Pictures has acquired the rights to Jonathan Demme’s documentary Neil Young Journeys. According to a rep from SPC, “With their latest collaboration, Neil Young and Jonathan Demme are a match made in movie heaven.” For Journeys, Demme followed Young as he traveled from his Ontario hometown to Toronto for the final two nights of his solo world tour. Produced by Demme and Elliot Rabinowitz, Journeys premiered at last month’s Toronto International Film festival, and SPC will distribute it around the world, excluding Latin America. This is Demme and Young’s third performance-based collaboration after Neil Young: Heart of Gold and Neil Young Trunk Show. SPC previously released Demme’s recent films Jimmy Carter Man from Plains and Rachel Getting Married.
