Virgil Films announces the VOD and DVD release of Glen Campbell… I’ll Be Mea
new documentary film about the country/pop superstar produced and
directed by filmmaker James Keach (Walk the Line). The film, which will
aired on CNN on June 28th, became the most-watched CNN Films broadcast
in the franchise’s history with over 2.76 million viewers on the night
of its premiere. Glen Campbell… I’ll Be Me 
will be available on digital platforms (EST) on August 18th followed by a DVD and VOD release on September 1st.
Glen Campbell… I’ll Be Me
was directed by James Keach (producer of Walk the Line) and produced by
Trevor Albert (producer of Groundhog Day) and Keach. Keach and Albert
also collaborated on the award winning film, Waiting for Forever.
“The
making of this film has been an exhilarating, joyous and inspiring
ride. I attribute that entirely to the heroic spirit of Glen Campbell
and his extraordinary family,” said producer Trevor Albert.
In
2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour
across America. They thought it would last 5 weeks, instead it went for
151 spectacular sold out shows over a triumphant year and a half across
America.
What
made this tour extraordinary was that Glen had recently been diagnosed
with Alzheimer’s disease. He was told to hang up his guitar and prepare
for the inevitable. Instead, Glen and his wife went public with his
diagnosis and announced that he and his family would set out on a
“Goodbye Tour.”
The
film documents this amazing journey as he and his family attempt to
navigate the wildly unpredictable nature of Glen’s progressing disease
using love, laughter and music as their medicine of choice. Special
appearances include Bruce Springsteen, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Blake
Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Steve
Martin, Chad Smith and Bill Clinton among many others.
“We
are honored to bring this portrait of Glen Campbell to American
audiences,” said said Joe Amodei of Virgil Films. “This great
entertainer and his indelible music have been a part of so many lives
for decades, we look forward to reminding everyone of what’s so special
about him.”

Keach
added “the legacy Glen Campbell and his incredibly courageous family
share in this film is one of the most important movies I have been
blessed to have worked on. Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me will forever
inspire me as a filmmaker and a man. Glen is a real life hero on and off
the stage.”
