SONY PICTURES CLASSICS ACQUIRES 'WHERE’S MY ROY COHN?'

Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they have acquired rights in North America, The Middle East, Scandinavia, India, South Africa, Benelux, Turkey, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Latin America, and on worldwide airlines and ships to Matt Tyrnauer’s film, WHERE’S MY ROY COHN?. The film had its world premiere this past weekend in the US Documentary Competition at the Sundance Film Festival.

Roy Cohn personified the dark arts of American politics, turning empty vessels into dangerous demagogues -- from Joseph McCarthy to his final project, Donald J. Trump. For the first time, in WHERE’S MY ROY COHN?, this thriller-like expose connects the dots, revealing how a deeply troubled master manipulator shaped our current American nightmare.

Altimeter Films produced the film in association with Concordia Studio and Wavelength Productions. Producers include Tyrnauer, Corey Reeser p.g.a, Marie Brenner, Joyce Deep, and Andrea Lewis.

“The Sundance reception for ‘Where’s My Roy Cohn?’ has been overwhelming, affirming in the extreme. As a filmmaker I have always had the greatest admiration for Sony Pictures Classics, and their extraordinary taste and curatorial eye. They have been behind many of the films I admire most. I can’t think of a better company to bring this film and its message to theatrical audiences across the nation and beyond,” stated Filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer.

SPC negotiated the deal with Endeavor Content and Donaldson & Callif on behalf of the filmmakers. Tyrnauer, Reeser, and Altimeter films are represented by WME

Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
