Cancer Fighter Yauch To Release Burroughs Film

Ailing BEASTIE BOYS star ADAM YAUCH has acquired the rights to release a new documentary about influential writer and counter-culture icon WILLIAM S. BURROUGHS.
The rapper, aka MCA, put his music career on hold after he was diagnosed with cancer last summer (09) - but he has pressed on with his production activities as the boss of Oscilloscope Laboratories.
According to IndieWire.com, William S. Burroughs: A Man Within will hit U.S. cinemas later this year (10), shortly before the film is released on DVD.
The film, directed by Yony Leyser, features archive video footage of the author, plus interviews with fans like Iggy Pop, and Patti Smith, who also recorded the film's soundtrack with members of Sonic Youth.
