Los Angeles-based indie producer-distributor Good Deed Entertainment has acquired all North American rights to Helena Coan’s (pictured) feature-length documentary about iconic Hollywood star Audrey Hepburn.
Audrey, which is expected to premiere theatrically throughout North America in 2020, paints a portrait of the Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Sabrina actress who grew up as a malnourished child estranged from her father in war-torn Europe to a legendary Hollywood star nearly overnight. The film will provide the comprehensive story of Hepburn’s life, all while exploring failed marriages and why she fled from La La Land to pursue her passion for humanitarian work.
The feature will also interweave authentic audio-visual archive with new interviews to provide intimate insight into Hepburn’s life, as well as choreography that aims to celebrate the film star’s love of dance.
BAFTA-nominated Salon Pictures and XYZ Films produce the project, with Nick Taussig, Paul Van Carter and Annabel Wigoder set as producers. Phil Hunt and Compton Ross serve as executive producers.
Audrey marks the latest film from XYZ Films’ burgeoning documentary division, which has been behind the likes of You Don’t Nomi, Lil’ Buck: Real Swan and Framing John Delorean.
The filmisfinanced by Head Gear Films and Metrol Technology. The film is being repped internationally by UPHE Content Group.
The deal was negotiated by Pip Ngo at XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers with Brandon Hill and Kristin Harris at Good Deed Entertainment.
