Apple-Backed ‘Bad Boy’ Doco On Sean Combs Poised For Premiere

in Entertainment


APPLE is set to unveil the first of two festival films it acquired out of Tribeca in April, marking a fresh chapter for the media behemoth.

The first feature — a documentary about Sean “Diddy” Combs dubbed Can’t Stop Won’t Stop: A Bad Boy Story — will be the company’s first documentary to also play in theaters, opening in Los Angeles and New York on June 23 before becoming available on Apple Music on June 25 (via The Hollywood Reporter).

The documentary, the second project from Live Nation Productions, follows Combs as he puts together the Bad Boy 20th anniversary concert while also tracing the hip-hop company’s journey via interviews with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, Mase and Jay-Z.

The second documentary acquisition by Apple – titled Clive Davis: The Soundtrack of Our Lives – focuses on the 50-year career of veteran record producer and music executive Clive Davis, who is to be feted with the Keys to Italy’s Ischia Global Film & Music Fest next month on 11 July at the Castiglione di Casamicciola.
