Funny or Die, Scott Pictures in pix pact

Scott Steindorff's shingle to back two to three comedies per year

The six-year-old Funny or Die website is stepping up its move into comedy features, partnering with Scott Steindorff and his Scott Pictures production company in a multi-year deal to create two to three comedy movies per year.

Plans calls for Scott Pictures to finance the low-budget features with Funny or Die’s writers, directors and comedians. The website will then market and sell the films.

Funny or Die produced “Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie,” which premiered at last year’s Sundance Film Festival. The film starred comedians Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, who wrote and directed it, and grossed about $200,000 domestically for Magnet Releasing.

Funny or Die was created by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy. Steindorff, whose credits include “The Lincoln Lawyer” is ion pre-production on “Jane Got a Gun,” starring Natalie Portman and Michael Fassbender.

Scott Pictures International will sell foreign rights to the Funny or Die features.
