The Beastie Boyz Story is coming to Apple TV from the one and only Spike Jonze.
The story that revolves around legendary hip-hop group directed by Jonze features Grammy Award-winning bandmembers Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz talking about their music career and 40-year friendship.
A special cut of the feature documentary will open exclusively in select Imax theaters for a limited run from April 3, before the film debuts globally on Apple TV+ on April 24.
Diamond (aka Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock) along with the late Adam Yauch (MCA) formed the hip-hop group, and the surviving band members recall their musical collaboration in the feature doc after earlier penning a memoir.
Jonze even directed the music video for the Beastie Boys' hit single Sabotage. "I owe Beastie Boys a lot. 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. So, it was a real privilege to get to reunite with them and help them tell their story," Jonze said in a statement.
The film is produced for Apple by Fresh Bread and Pulse Films, in association with Polygram Entertainment.
