MarVista & Particular Crowd Enter Production Partnership


Particular Crowd, the new film banner of WarnerMedia’s Turner Latin America, and MarVista Entertainment have entered into a multiyear production slate deal.

Particular Crowd and MarVista will target the production of ten-plus films per year, focusing on “elevated movie content featuring unique and edgier stories and breakthrough talent,” with the potential to crossover to the theatrical space.

The first projects in production within the deal are Sightless, directed by Cooper Karl; Two Deaths of Henry Baker, directed by Felipe Mucci; Tow, directed by Alex Merkin; and Hunter Hunter, directed by Shawn Linden.

Turner and MarVista will jointly oversee development and production, and MarVista will oversee the global distribution of these films outside of Latin America, including film festivals and theatrical releases.

“We believe that with this agreement we’ll be providing opportunities for new storytelling voices across all disciplines—writing, directing, acting and producing—as talent discovery is a pillar of the initiative,” said Tomás Yankelevich, executive VP and chief content officer for general entertainment at Turner Latin America. “We want to build a sustainable model for mainstream independent films to meet viewer appetite for quality movies when and where they want to consume their content.”

“With MarVista’s studio platform infrastructure and ability to produce high-quality content at scale, we see this partnership with Particular Crowd as a significant opportunity to apply our best practices to the independent film landscape,” said Fernando Szew, CEO of MarVista. “Developing new talent and telling diverse stories are sources of pride at our company and at the heart of our business, and we look forward to collaborating with Particular Crowd in this new venture to achieve just that with our slate of new movies.”
