Universal Music Group has acquired the international rights to the “Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me” documentary released in 2012.
Universal also has announced it will release the film later this year “in various configurations” including in a deluxe box set that includes Big Star’s albums in CD format, as well as via digital download and as a standalone Blu-Ray and DVD.
