Apple has purchased the worldwide screen rights to the Ed Sheeran documentary, “Songwriter.”
The film made its North America debut on Monday at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.
The Murray Cummings-directed documentary shows the development of Sheeran’s career and his creative process crafting and performing his own hit songs and those for others.
Cummings is Sheeran’s cousin, and he grew up watching the now-superstar chasing his dream and just so happened to catch a good deal of it on video — ranging from Sheeran’s opening gigs for Taylor Swift to his sold-out performance at 90,000-capacity Wembley Stadium.
