WB Nabs Global Distribution Rights To Peter Jackson’s WWI Documentary ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’
On the heels of it’s recent premiere at the London Film Festival, Peter Jackson’s World War I documentary has landed a studio to distribute it. The documentary titled They Shall Not Grow Old has been picked up by Warner Bros. according to Deadline. Warner Bros. will now handle the film’s global distribution.
The film mixes previously unseen film footage and audio recordings from the Imperial War Museums’ film archives with state of the art technology that includes colorized and sharpened images converted to stereoscopic 3D. The result is an immersive film that humanizes the experiences of the young British soldiers who fought in WWI 100 years ago, in sequences that are narrated by the soldiers themselves
