Antoine Fuqua has inked a production partnership with IM Global – one of the leading film financing, sales and distribution companies in the world.
The deal will see IM Global develop, produce and finance feature film projects with Fuqua’s production company – Fuqua Films.
The news comes on the heels of Fuqua’s latest effort, “The Equalizer,” starring Denzel Washington, premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival.
“Antoine is such a great creative force whose career is going from strength to strength and we look forward to helping him and Kat [Samick] take their company to the next level as a production powerhouse,” said IM Global CEO Stuart Ford.
Up next for the director is the boxing drama “Southpaw,” which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Forest Whitaker.
The deal was brokered by CAA.
Attorney Wendy Kirk of Ziffren Brittenham represented Fuqua Films.
Deborah Zipser and Matt Jackson negotiated on behalf of IM Global.
