Contrafilm partners go separate ways

Flynn, Vinson headed for different paths

Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson, partners in Contrafilm, are ending their 10-year partnership.

The duo, based at New Line, announced Friday that they plan to pursue different paths.

They will remain credited producers on an array of upcoming projects set up at various studios under the Contrafilm banner.

Three Contrafilm titles are in post production: “Red Dawn” at MGM, starring Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck and Josh Hutcherson; “What’s Your Number” with Anna Faris and Chris Evans at New Regency/Fox; and “Journey 2” at New Line/Warner Bros., starring Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine, Josh Hutcherson and Vanessa Hudgens.

Flynn and Vinson said they will continue to develop eight other projects — “Baywatch” at Par with Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock’s Montecito Pictures; “The Dream Team” at Screen Gems/Sony, based on Benson Lee’s documentary “Planet B-Boy”; “Solace” at New Line/Warner Bros.; “The Orphanage” at New Line/Warner Bros., based on the Spanish language film by Juan Antonio Bayona and produced with Guillermo Del Toro; “Bob the Musical” at Disney; “Inside the Machine” at CBS Films; “King of Kong” at New Line/Warner Bros., based on the documentary by the same name; and “Murder Mystery” at Tower Hill Entertainment.

“We have nothing but love and respect for each other, and our decision to pursue our own separate paths after 10 amazing years together is not an easy one,” Flynn and Vinson said in a statement. “But we have reached the stage where it is time to embrace new challenges and make films on our own.”

Notable Contrafilm performers were “Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D,” with $241 million worldwide, and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” with $144 million worldwide.
