Veteran Canadian filmmaker Ron Mann is set to direct ALTMAN, a feature documentary about the late American film director Robert Altman, for Sphinx Productions, EPIX, and Canadian pay TV service The Movie Network. The documentary will follow Altman from growing up in Depression-era Kansas City to receiving an honorary Oscar in 2006 to recognize his long and iconoclastic career which has included such landmark films as MASH, NASHVILLE and GOSFORD PARK. Mann will produce the film with Altman’s widow Kathryn Reed Altman, and Matthew Seig, a film producer who worked closely with the maverick director. The film will be completed in mid-2013 and will certainly be a film festival circuit favorite.
