ALL ABOUT MALCOLM: Designer Keanan Duffty’s documentary on Malcolm McLaren is moving closer to fruition. At the Tribeca Film Festival later this month, Duffty will reveal that he has signed a production deal with Roastbeef Production, a London-based company whose latest documentary, “Hell and Back Again,” was nominated for an Oscar at this year’s Academy Awards and won two awards at the Sundance Film Festival. Duffty is co-producing the film, which is a tribute to McLaren’s legacy in music, fashion and contemporary culture, with Dan Honan. In the U.S., the two have inked a production deal with Thought Engine, which co-produced the Harry Belafonte documentary, “Sing Your Song,” another Academy Award-nominated film. “In June, we will be showing a new ‘Malcolm McLaren: Spectacular Failure’ trailer at the documentary film festival, Meet Market, in Sheffield, England,” Duffty said. “It’s the biggest European festival for documentaries. So it is moving along nicely.” The film is slated for a 2013 release.
