Ahead of its North American premiere at this year’s TriBeCa Film Festival, RLJE Films picked up the rock and roll biopic, Creation Stories, based on the life of Creation Records creator and founder Alan McGee.
Written by Dean Cavanagh (Kubricks) and Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting), Creation Stories was directed by Nick Moran (The Kid). The film stars Ewen Bremner (Wonder Woman, Trainspotting), Kirsty Mitchell (The Hitman’s Bodyguard), Suki Waterhouse (The Divergent Series), Thomas Turgoose (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Leo Flanagan (“Waterloo Road”) and Jason Isaacs (Fury).
Creation Stories charts the true story of the rise and fall of Creation Records and its infamous founder, Alan McGee; the man responsible for supplying the “Brit Pop” soundtrack to the 90s, a decade of cultural renaissance known as Cool Britannia. From humble beginnings to Downing Street soirées, from dodging bailiffs to releasing multi-platinum albums, Creation had it all. Breakdowns, bankruptcy, fights and friendships… and not forgetting the music. Featuring some of the greatest records you have ever heard, we follow Alan through a drug-fueled haze of music and mayhem, as his rock’n’roll dream brings the world Oasis, Primal Scream, and other generation-defining bands.
