Alex Winter, Laura Poitras, Elijah Wood & ‘Undefeated’ Producer Glen Zipper Team For Panama Papers Doc, First Footage

EXCLUSIVE: Alex Winter, Glen Zipper (Undefeated) and Laura Poitras (Citizenfour) have teamed up on documentary The Panama Papers, narrated by Elijah Wood.

Great Point Media will launch sales on the under-the-rader completed movie at Toronto. We can debut first footage from the film.

The talking-heads doc, which includes interviews with whistleblowers and key journalists on the investigation, will tell the story of the massive data breach which uncovered murky political and financial corruption, bribes, election rigging and murder. An unprecedented coordination of hundreds of journalists broke the story two years ago.

Interviewees include Bastian Obermayer and Frederik Obermaier who broke the original story from Süddeutsche Zeitung, Luke Harding, Juliette Garside and Paul Johnson from The Guardian, Kevin Hall from McClatchy DC and Marina Walker and Gerard Ryle from ICIJ.

Actor-turned-director Winter (Deep Web) is directing and producing. Robert Friedman (The Confirmation) of Bungalow Media + Entertainment also produces with Zipper of Zipper Bros Films. Executive producers are Poitras, Great Point’s Robert Halmi and Jim Reeve, and Charlotte Cook. Zipper and Poitras are both Best Documentary Oscar winners.
