  • Beastie Boys documentary coming to Apple TV

Apple has acquired Beastie Boys Story, a new nonfiction film from Grammy Award-winning Beastie Boys members Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz and Academy Award-winning director Spike Jonze (Her, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation.). Fans will also be able to catch a special cut of the documentary at selected IMAX theatres from April 3.

The Beastie Boys described the movie on Twitter as "kind of a live documentary".

Directed by Academy Award-winner Spike Jonze (Her, Being John Malkovich), Beastie Boys Story has been made with the direct involvement of the band's surviving members, Mike D (Mike Diamond) and Ad-Rock (Adam Horovitz).

The timing comes just ahead of the 26th anniversary of the release of Beastie Boys' fourth album Ill Communication.

"There are some friends you have lunch with so many times over the years, you know their order", Mike D and Ad-Rock said in a statement.

Given Jonze's long-time friendship and history with the Beastie Boys (he directed the classic music videos for Sabotage and Sure Shot), you can expect the documentary to be a revealing and intimate portrait of the group and its inner workings. Spike is one of those friends. Like when we wondered what to do when our book comes out. then Spike placed his order: "You will put on a show for the children".

Jason Baum, Amanda Adelson and Jonze are producers of Beastie Boys Story.

"Beastie Boys Story" is produced by Grammy victor Jason Baum and Amanda Adelson alongside director and writer Jonze, and it is executive produced by Diamond, Horovitz, Dechen Wangdu-Yauch, John Silva, John Cutcliffe, Peter Smith, Thomas Benski, Dan Bowen, Sam Bridger, Michele Anthony, David Blackman and Ashley Newton. "One time, they pulled me out of a burning ship, and another time they helped me cheat on my college exam to get into Florida State", Jonze said. "So, it was a real privilege to get to reunite with them and help them tell their story".

The film hails from Fresh Bread and Pulse Films in association with Polygram Entertainment.

Endeavor Content and CAA repped the Apple deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
