Lionsgate, Grindstone reup with Emmett/Furla

Deal covers another 10 pics

Lionsgate and its Grindstone Entertainment Group have renewed a slate deal with producer Emmett/Furla Films for another 10 pics and expanded their overall relationship, the companies said Thursday.

The collaboration so far has included thriller “Set Up,” starring Bruce Willis, Ryan Phillippe and Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson; crime drama “Freelancers,” with Robert De Niro and Forest Whitaker; “Fire With Fire,” starring Willis and Josh Duhamel; and “The Froxen Ground,” with Nicolas Cage and John Cusack. Next up is crime thriller “Empire State,” with Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson.

“Grindstone has been an important supplier of content for our filmed entertainment business in recent years, and their pipeline of commercially exciting, quality films from Emmett/Furla has been a key element of their success,” said Lionsgate co-COO and motion picture prexy Steve Beeks.

“We have partnered with the Lionsgate family on films for more than 10 years, and we’re thrilled to see our partnership continue to grow with their success,” said Emmett/Furla’s Randall Emmett and George Furla.

Emmett/Furla are producing action thriller “The Tomb,” starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, for theatrical release by the Lionsgate family next year.
