Seduced and Abandoned: Toback’s Docu

HBO acquired the documentary, which was shot during last year’s Cannes Film Festival.

It follows Toback, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Bugsy and Alec Baldwin, the Oscar-nominated actor, as they try to raise financing for a new project and assess the current state of the film industry.

The duo spoke not only with anonymous financiers and distributors, but also some A-list directors, such as Scorsese, Coppola, Bertolucci and Polanski.
