French genre specialist WTFilms has picked up sales on documentary La Bare, which goes behind the scenes at the famous male stripper club La Bare in Dallas, as part of a move into non-fiction.
WTFilms co-founders Dimitri Stephanides and Gregory Chamet say the move is a natural one for their Paris-based company, which has built up a strong reputation for its genre-based fiction slate in recent years.
“We love genre but want to tackle every aspect of its wide range”, said Stephanides
“Great films like Jodorowsky’s Dune and Room 237 have inspired us. Our name means we want to sell intense, rock ’n’ roll movies, and that is valid for documentaries as well.”
La Bare was written and directed by Joe Manganiello, who played Big Dick Richie in Magic Mike. The film, which premiered at Slamdance in January, will be released
