Relativity Studios is partnering with Condé Nast Entertainment and Vogue to produce and distribute a documentary about the making of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s spring 2015 Costume Institute exhibition and gala.
It’s the latest example of a news company teaming up with a movie studio on a joint venture. In recent months, the likes of Newsweek, “60 Minutes” and BuzzFeed have all collaborated with studios or production companies on projects that mine their areas of coverage for bigscreen entertainments.
