Dogwoof has acquired international sales rights to The Last Impresario.

Gracie Otto’s debut feature about legendary theatre producer Michael White will make its market debut at the upcoming Efm.

A UK theatrical release is planned for late 2014.

White was behind theatre hits such as A Chorus Line and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, while he also championed John Cleese and introduced UK audiences to Yoko Ono, Pina Bausch and Barry Humphries.

He moved onto cinema with films such as Monty Python and the Holy Grail and John WatersPolyester.

Vesna Cudic, head of TV sales and acquisitions at Dogwoof, commented: “We are always looking for inspirational stories about extraordinary individuals, films such as Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present or most recently Mike Myers’ Supermensch. The Last Impresario is a perfect addition to our slate.”

“I’m so pleased that Dogwoof shares our enthusiasm »
