Duo on the Edge

Krane, Rogers shingle kicks off with 'Party'

Veteran producers Jonathan Krane and Beau Rogers have launched the Edge, a production shingle aimed at turning out three to five features annually with budgets between $1 million and $10 million.

Shingle’s initial acquisition, announced at AFM, is the dramatic comedy “Mrs. Worthington’s Party,” which screens this week at the Fort Lauderdale Film Festival.

The duo plans to focus on “commercially viable” genres including fish-out-of-water comedies and character-driven action films and thrillers. The Edge will raise coin through a variety of sources including hedge funds, foreign finanancing and tax incentives.

The Edge will operate from offices in Los Angeles and Fort Lauderdale.

Krane is former head of MCEG and has producing credits on 44 features, including the “Look Who’s Talking” trilogy, “Phenomenon,” “Blind Date” and “Primary Colors.” Rogers also has more than 40 credits, including exec producing “Gods and Monsters.”
