Showtime Planning Theatrical Release For Clapton Rock Doc

Showtime is reportedly planning a theatrical release for their forthcoming new documentary about Eric Clapton. The network has reportedly acquired rights to the film, which is titled A Life in 12 Bars. The film will be helmed by Lili Fini Zanuck but will also involve Searching for Sugar Man producer John Battse. In an official statement Zanuck says that Clapton’s commitment to the blues tradition will be focal in the project. “Clapton’s music is the foundation of our film. His commitment to the blues, its traditions and originators, is absolute from his earliest days,” Zanuck said. “He was also forever restless in his search of a suitable vehicle to shape and grow his artistic voice, often bewildering fans and the media with sudden changes in musical direction, bands, songs, guitar style, tone and physical $appearance.” Copyright(c) 2017 RTTNews.com.
