‘Julia’ producer hangs own shingle

Rosenberg also co-produced 'Brooms'

MONTREAL — “Being Julia” producer Julia Rosenberg is leaving Serendipity Point Films to form her own production company, January Films.

The split with Toronto-based Serendipity is amicable; topper Robert Lantos is letting Rosenberg work out of the Serendipity offices.

Rosenberg has been a producer and head of development at Serendipity since it opened in 1998.

Aside from “Being Julia,” which netted Annette Bening a Golden Globe for actress Sunday, she co-produced “Men With Brooms,” a curling comedy that was one of the biggest hits in English-Canadian film.

Rosenberg was an associate producer on Atom Egoyan’s “Ararat” and his pic “Where the Truth Lies.” Latter stars Kevin Bacon, Colin Firth and Alison Lohman and is in post-production.

Rosenberg produced the eight-part TV series “G-Spot,” which will air this spring on the Movie Network and Movie Central in Canada.

January Films will be involved in movie and TV production.
