After the magnificent first season of The Walking Dead, is there any doubt that there are some horror fans milling about the various TV networks? As if flesh-eating zombies on AMC aren’t enough, now A&E has something special planned for all you Corman fanatics out there.
According to today’s press release, television rights to “Corman’s World: Exploits of a Hollywood Rebel”, have been picked up ahead of its Sundance premiere by A&E INDIEFILMS as part of an investment in the project. The film marks the directorial debut of Alex Stapleton and chronicles the incredible career and massive Hollywood influence of legendary director and producer Roger Corman. Corman will be in Park City for the world premiere of the film this Friday, January 21. The film also features bold-faced “Cormanites” such as Jack Nicholson, Ron Howard, Jonathan Demme, Martin Scorsese, and many others. The film was produced and financed by Far Hills Pictures’ Stone Douglass and Taylor Materne. Stapleton, Izabela Frank, Mickey Barold, and Jeff Frey also served as producers on the project.
A&E hasn’t divulged any potential dates for the documentary’s debut as of yet, but watch this space. We’ll give it when we get it.
