Apple has announced that it has acquired Beastie Boys Story, a new nonfiction film from Beastie Boys (Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz) and Academy Award-winning director Spike Jonze. The band released the Beastie Boys Book and did a tour and this looks to be a film that captures the presentation (and more).
We’re going to get our first chance to see the documentary when it opens in IMAX theaters for a limited engagement on April 3rd, and then it will premier globally on Apple TV+ on April 24th.
Beastie Boys Story is produced by Grammy Award winner Jason Baum, Amanda Adelson, alongside director and writer Spike Jonze, and executive produced by Mike Diamond, Adam Horovitz, Dechen Wangdu-Yauch, John Silva, John Cutcliffe, Peter Smith, Thomas Benski, Dan Bowen, Sam Bridger, Michele Anthony, David Blackman and Ashley Newton.
The film is produced for Apple by Fresh Bread and Pulse Films in association with Polygram Entertainment.
