Now, Apple has announced that it has acquired the rights to the film, simply titled The Velvet Underground. The documentary, directed and co-produced by Haynes, will have its eventual premiere on Apple TV+.
The Velvet Underground is being produced by Polygram Entertainment, Motto Pictures, and Killer Films, in association with Federal Films. Producers on the documentary include Christine Vachon, Julie Goldman, Christopher Clements, Carolyn Hepburn, and David Blackman.
