Mark Gordon Company & eOne Align with Moonriver


LOS ANGELES/LONDON: The Mark Gordon Company and Entertainment One (eOne) have entered into a partnership with Xavier Marchand’s Moonriver Content.

The focus of the newly unveiled U.K.-based film and television development and production outfit is to acquire, develop and produce film and television projects with a focus on British and European stories and talent. The move is expected to increase the volume of U.K. and European projects coming to The Mark Gordon Company and eOne for financing, co-producing and distribution.  

Marchand commented: “I am thrilled to launch my company to work on my own projects and continue working with all the talented partners who have entrusted eOne and me with their films. In partnership with Mark Gordon and his superb team, and with the backing of eOne, I look forward to building on these existing relationships and fostering new ones in film as well as in TV.”

“We are eager to expand into Europe, and finding strong projects requires deep relationships and experience. Xavier brings a robust network to the partnership,” said Gordon. “On top of that, he’s a creative storyteller who people love to work with. We’re excited for what’s to come.”

Exposure will mark the first feature project under the new collaboration, with Niki Caro attached to direct the film. Written by Hayley Schore and Roshan Sethi, Exposure is about extraordinary scientist Rosalind Franklin who was instrumental in the discovery of DNA and never got the recognition she deserved.
