Steindorff’s Scott Pictures plans expansion

Launches int'l sales company with Exclusive Media

Scott Steindorff’s Scott Pictures has set an ambitious expansion plan, launching a joint venture international sales company with Exclusive Media and unveiling plans to finance three to five features per year — starting with Natalie Portman actioner “Jane Got a Gun.”

Steindorff and banker Peter Nathanial have come onboard to finance and produce “Jane Got a Gun” with Portman through her Handsomecharlie Films banner alongside Terry Dougas of 1821 and Chris Coen. Brillstein Entertainment PartnersAleen Keshishian will exec produce with 1821’s Paris Latsis, Scott Pictures’ Scott LaStaiti, Dylan Russell and Peter Fruchtman.

“Jane Got a Gun,” which was first unveiled at Cannes, is set to start shooting early next year with Lynne Ramsey (“We Need to Talk About Kevin”) directing. Story, penned by Brian Duffield, centers on a woman who must ask an ex-lover for help in order to save her outlaw husband from a gang out to kill him.

The news sales company, Scott Pictures Intl., is launching under an exclusive three-year partnership with Exclusive Media, which will handle the international sales and servicing for all Scott Pictures features under this new label.

“Overseeing our own foreign sales is a natural next step for Scott Pictures as we plan to produce three to five of our own theatrically released pictures each year for the next five years,” Steindorff said in a statement. “It’s about controlling the process, creating a brand and supplying great films to international distributors.”

Scott Pictures is also developing horror thriller “Land of the Living” from director Olivier Megaton and writer Nicci French based on the novel by Sean Gullette.

Under Stone Village Pictures, Steindorff’s producing credits include “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “The Human Stain” and “Love in the Time of Cholera.”

Steindorff’s partners in the new sales entity are Nathanial, LaStaiti, Russell and Fruchtman.

Exclusive Media’s international sales arm will continue to operate as a standalone entity, in addition to its joint venture with Scott Pictures. The company, headed by co-chairmen Nigel Sinclair and Guy East, exec produced “Hit and Run” and produced “End of Watch,” due out Sept. 21.

Exclusive Media is in post-production on “Can a Song Save Your Life?”; Hammer’s “The Quiet Ones”; Ron Howard’s racing drama “Rush”; “Snitch,” starring Dwayne Johnson and Susan Sarandon and to be released by Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment; and teen action comedy “So Undercover,” starring Miley Cyrus.

The deal was brokered by CAA and negotiated by Paul Davidge for Exclusive Media and Dylan Russell for Scott Pictures.
