Bruce Springsteen’s “Western Stars” movie, which he co-directed with Thom Zimney, will have its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month, and it looks like fans will eventually get to see the movie in theaters.
Warner Brors. has acquired the rights to the film, with plans to release it in theaters this fall. The film, a companion piece to The Boss’ latest solo record “Western Stars,” features Springsteen performing all 13 songs on the album, backed by a band and a full orchestra. The performance took place in his historic nearly 100-year-old barn.
And fans who head to the theater to see the just released Bruce-inspired movie “Blinded By The Light” will get their first look at “Western Stars.” A trailer for the film is airing ahead of the movie.
- ONE MORE THING! As for how “Blinded By The Light” did at the box office this weekend, it landed in ninth place overall, bringing in $4.5 million from 2,307 movie theaters.
