Theron gets ‘Monster’ man

Peterson bought in to Denver & Delilah

Charlize Theron has brought fellow “Monster” producer Clark Peterson in to oversee development and production at her Denver & Delilah Films shingle.

Peterson will produce the company’s films with Theron.

Denver & Delilah drew its first credit with “Monster.” Theron is looking to ramp up the producing shingle, an effort that starts with two independently financed pictures.

Footage for “Homesick,” profiling the lives and music of several Cuban rappers, has already been shot in the ghettos of Havana. Theron, Peterson and Meagan Riley-Grant are producing.

Banner is also making “Ferris Wheel,” a drama scripted by Zac Stanford (“The Chumscrubber”) that will mark the directorial debut of William Maher.

Pic is financed by Montreal-based Remstar, which provided coin for the Theron starrer “Head in the Clouds.” New drama concerns the familial bond that forms between a man and his young niece after the girl’s mother leaves.

Peterson most recently produced “Behind the Smile,” financed by and starring Damon Wayans.
