Warner Bros Lands Springsteen Documentary ‘Western Stars’; Cleopatra Entertainment Nabs A Pair Of Music Docs

Warner Bros. has secured the global rights to the Bruce Springsteen performance documentary Western Stars ahead of its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. Springsteen co-directed the doc feature with Springsteen On Broadway helmer Thom Zimny. The film is titled after Springsteen’s first studio album in five years and will feature archival footage as well as him performing the complete album, which is being touted as his best one in years. A theatrical release has yet to be announced. Zimny, Jon Landau, Barbara Carr, and George Travis produced the film, while Springsteen served as executive producer.

Cleopatra Entertainment has obtained the North American rights to two music documentaries; Bluebird, which will hit limited theaters on November 15, and Melody Makers, slated to open shortly after on Nov. 29. The former centers on The Bluebird Cafe, where country stars like Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, and Taylor Swift got their breaks.
