A new Spike Jonze-directed Beastie Boys documentary is on the way

It'll be in theatres on April 3, and on Apple TV+ on April 24

After announcing a forthcoming photo book, Spike Jonze has directed Beastie Boys Story, a new documentary about the legendary trio.

The film, which Jonze wrote alongside surviving group members Adam Horovitz and Mike Diamond, is set to arrive at select IMAX theatres and on Apple TV+ in April. The forthcoming documentary shares the same title as the stage show Jonze, Horovitz, and Diamond put on last year, and it also has roots in Beastie Boys Book.

“There are some friends you have lunch with so many times over the years, you know their order,” Horovitz and Diamond explain in a statement. “Spike is one of those friends. And even when you don’t recognize anything on the menu, he comes up with something good for the whole table. Like when we wondered what to do when our book comes out… then Spike placed his order: You will put on a show for the children.”

Beastie Boys Story hits select IMAX theatres on April 3rd, and arrives on Apple TV+ on April 24th.
