Rudin inks indie producers

Van Hoy, Knudsen sign first-look deal

Scott Rudin has signed indie producers Jay Van Hoy and Lars Knudsen and their Parts and Labor shingle to a first-look deal.

The Rudin pact comes as Van Hoy and Knudsen are in Toronto for the world premiere screenings of a pair of pics they produced: the Nik Fackler-directed “Lovely, Still” and So Yong Kim’s “Treeless Mountain.”

The producers are also in post-production for the Cruz Angeles-directed “Don’t Let Me Drown,” David Barker’s “Untitled,” the Cam Archer-helmed “Shit Year” and Bradley Rust Gray’s “Exploding Girl,” and they are in production on the docus “Dune” and “American Furries.”

The duo first worked together as interns and then assistants at Rudin’s company back in 2001.

“I wanted to give them the financial freedom to buy material in a business with such tight margins, but this is also a way for our company to have a foot squarely in the specialty film world,” Rudin said.
