Keith Moon Biopic In the Works

A still-untitled biopic of legendary The Who drummer Keith Moon will be the first project to be developed under a new slate development and financing agreement announced today by Exclusive Media and Da Vinci Media Ventures.

The new agreement between Exclusive and the New York based Da Vinci Media Ventures, the management company to the Da Vinci funds led by Wendy Rutland and U.K. tech guru Toby Moores, extends the rolling 4-picture equity deal the two firms inked in Cannes this year.

We are excited to be topping up our deal with Exclusive, and look forward to growing the relationship.”

The Moon biopic will be set up under Exclusive Media's banner. Da Vinci’s Wendy Rutland will also serve as an executive producer.
