King Cohen, the buzzed-about documentary about maverick filmmaker Larry Cohen, won’t be out for another week. But you can see a clip of it right now! Below lies the tale of the creation of special effects in Coen’s 1982 creature feature “Q: The Winged Serpent.”
Popgeeks reviewed this documentary last month, and we were pleased. King Cohen was produced by La-La Land Entertainment in association with Big And Tall Pictures and Off The Cliff Productions. It is directed and produced by Steve Mitchell and produced by Matt Verboys and Dan McKeon.
Buckle up for KING COHEN, the true story of writer, producer, director, creator and all-around maverick, Larry Cohen. Told through compelling live interviews, stills and film/TV clips, the people who helped fulfill his vision, and industry icons such as Martin Scorsese, J.J. Abrams, John Landis, Michael Moriarty, Fred Williamson, Yaphet Kotto and many more, including Larry himself, bring one-of-a-kind insight into the work, process and legacy of a true American film auteur. Few can boast of a career as remarkable or prolific, spanning more than 50 years of entertaining audiences worldwide.
King Cohen will make its world debut in LA July 20, with other stops along its screening tour to be revealed. We’ll let you know if it’s coming to your neighborhood.
