Kristen Schaal is heading north to join Dave Bautista, Ken Jeong, Parisa Fitz-Henley and Chloe Coleman in STXfilms’ action-comedy My Spy, which is now filming in Toronto.
When it comes to mounting quintessential auterish independent films on the big screen today, chances are that OddLot Entertainment is there. The company co-founded by Gigi Pritzker has produced and co-financed such titles as this year’s awards season contender Hell or High Water, Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive and this year’s Sundance entry Landline from Obvious Child filmmaker Gillian Robespierre.
Madison Wells Media has rebranded and brought all divisions under a new company name MWM, based in Century City. Part of the rebrand includes renamed divisions including MWM Studios (formerly OddLot Entertainment), MWM Immersive (formerly Reality One) and MWM Live (formerly Relevant Theatricals) as part of a new strategy to streamline operations to orient their 22 employees as one group. The management strategy is one that tech companies have also implemented in order to maximize flexibility when working across multiple platforms. The model is considered the most efficient for both employees and content providers.
