Altitude is introducing the project – featuring never-before-seen footage of the rock and roll legend – to buyers at the EFM.
God is – finally – getting the feature documentary treatment.
Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars, described as an unflinching and deeply personal journey into the life of one of music's all-time legends, is in the works, with Lili Fini Zanuck, director of 1991's Rush and the Oscar-winning producer of Driving Miss Daisy, directing. John Battsek (Searching for Sugar Man, One Day in September, The Imposter) produces for Passion Pictures, while BAFTA-winning editor Chris King (Amy, Senna) is in the cutting room.
Altitude Film Sales has boarded the project for international sales and will be showing the first footage to buyers in Berlin. Altitude's distribution arm is also taking U.K. rights to the film.
