John Hart Announces New Venture - Evamere; Will Manage former Hart Sharp Assets

Hart Sharp Entertainment founding partners John Hart and Jeffrey Sharp are parting ways after ten years of operating their production company, and Hart has announced the establishment of a new venture. The new company, Evamere, will focus on feature film and Broadway theatrical productions, that include Todd Solondz‘s (“Welcome to the Dollhouse“) latest project, “Life During Wartime” in the new slate. Also on Evamere’s roster is “Alice Goest to Harlem” to be written by Geoffrey Holder and Hilton Als; James Solomon‘s “The Conspirator“; and an adaptation of Macbeth, entitled “Come Like Shadows” adapted by Nick Saunders and Jennifer Lee Carrell. In addition to the new projects, Hart will manage some of the titles that were developed at Hart Sharp including “Revolutionary Road,” written by Justin Haythe and based on Richard Yates‘ novel, and Ed Wintle‘s memoir “Breakfast with Tiffany,” adapted for film by Tommy O’Haver and Irene Turner, to be directed by O’Haver. Hart will oversee the management of Hart Sharp’s library of films and the existing private equity funds, which he will manage as part of his new venture. “I am very proud of the movies that we have made over the span of our partnership,” said Hart in a statement. “We built a company and developed and produced quality films, while safeguarding our investors’ capital.” [Brian Brooks]
