Apple premiered its new nonfiction film “STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie” at Eccles Center at the Sundance Film Festival 2023 in Park City, ahead of its release on Apple TV+.
Director by Davis Guggenheim, the upcoming movie is based on the life of award-winning actor Michael J. Fox and his extraordinary fight against Parkinson’s disease.
New “STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie” documentary will debut on Apple TV+ in 2023
The new project is produced by Concordia Studio, along with Will Cohen, Jonathan King, Annetta Marion, Guggenheim, and others. It is executive produced by Nelle Fortenberry.
Shot just a Michael J. Fox movie, the new film is a mixture of drama, romance adventure, and comedy of his journey as a Canadian kid who rose to stardom in the 1980s and suffered an incurable disease, Parkinson’s at the age of 29.
The film, which will incorporate documentary, archival and scripted elements, will recount Fox’s extraordinary story in his own words — the improbable tale of an undersized kid from a Canadian army base who rose to the heights of stardom in 1980s Hollywood.
The account of Fox’s public life, full of nostalgic thrills and cinematic gloss, will unspool alongside his never-before-seen private journey, including the years that followed his diagnosis, at 29, with Parkinson’s disease.
Intimate and honest, and produced with unprecedented access to Fox and his family, the film will chronicle Fox’s personal and professional triumphs and travails, and will explore what happens when an incurable optimist confronts an incurable disease.
After the world premiere of the new movie, Fox, Guggenheim, and others associated with the project attended the Q&A session at the festival. “STILL: A Michael J. Fox Movie” will be released on Apple TV+ soon this year.
After a recent price increase, Apple TV+ monthly subscription fee now costs $6.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.
