Morgan Spurlock Presents resizes with more movies
Joe Amodei said it will look to release “Chalk” and “Wave” through theatrical partners, possibly putting up P&A money itself if it doesn’t find a suitable partner. Move continues a relationship between the “Super Size Me” director and Hart Sharp Video, which released Spurlock’s breakout doc on homevid. Spurlock said the plan is for as many as six to eight movies per year on Morgan Spurlock Presents. It’s possible he may finance a pic. “If the stars align and everything keeps moving in that direction, I think I will direct a movie for (the label),” he added. Helmer said that while he’s known for documentaries, Morgan Spurlock Presents will encompass a range of socially relevant categories. Spurlock also serves as exec producer on “Class Act,” and his Warrior Poets shingle provided finishing funds. Helmer is developing doc “The Republican War on Science” through Warrior Poets and also has had a hit with the role-reversal series “30 Days,” which has run for two seasons on FX.
