Beastie Makes Basketball Movie

Published on April 14, 2008 with No Comments

Beastie Boy Adam Yauch will unveil his latest movie venture at New York’s TriBeCa Film Festival – a documentary about a high school basketball team.

Gunnin’ For That No 1 Spot follows a group of players, who have since gone on to find fame in the college leagues.

Yauch says of his subjects: “They have this infrastructure around them, and they are being groomed for stardom. When I was in high school I wasn’t getting the quantity of media that these guys are. But it’s not necessarily a bad thing”.

Yauch recently revealed his plans to launch an independent film distribution company, Oscilloscope Pictures, with partners David Fenkel and Dan Beger.

The trio plan to release between two and 10 movies in the company’s first year of operation.
