Weinstein Co. buys Dixie Chicks docu
By Gregg Goldstein
NEW YORK -- Barbara Kopple and Cecilia Peck's politically charged documentary "Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing" has been picked up for worldwide distribution by the Weinstein Co. A release is tentatively scheduled for the fall, possibly right before the November elections.
The film revolves around the aftermath of singer Natalie Maines' statement at a 2003 London concert, where she said, "Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas."
(The Dixie Chick appeared here in the Cities recently. Four years ago they sold out 40,000 seats. This year they barely scratched 10K.)
Just so you know, girls- you can either a) shut up or b) sing.
You can't do both.
It's one of those basic human body things.
Bummer how reality does that, huh?
