A new documentary acquired by Magnolia Pictures will explore the journey of how Andre Leon Talley became, in Tyra's words, one of the most influential names in the fashion industry. The film is titled The Gospel According to Andre, and will make its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month.
The Gospel According to Andre is directed by Kate Novack, who tapped the talents of some of the industry's biggest insiders to give their two cents on Talley's talents. That includes Anna Wintour, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, Valentino,and Manolo Blahnik.
"Andre has been an unmissable fixture in the front row of fashion for as long as I can remember, but the story of how he got there has never really been told in an intimate way," said Novack in a press release. "There is no one I would rather partner with than Magnolia to bring Andre and his life's ' gospel' to audiences."
Magnolia Pictures' doc contains a good deal of archival footage documenting Talley's journey all the way back from his earlier years in Andy Warhol's Factory in the '70s to his time as editor-at-large of Vogue.
The movie will see a theatrical release in spring '18.
