Toronto: Antoine Fuqua Teams with IM Global in Producing Pact

IM Global has signed a production partnership deal with Antoine Fuqua’s Fuqua Films, two days after the world premiere of the director’s “The Equalizer,” starring Denzel Washington, at the Toronto Film Festival.

The deal calls for IM Global to develop, produce and finance feature projects alongside Fuqua and his producing partner Kat Samick, along with providing business affairs and back-office support.

Fuqua’s credits include “Training Day,” “Brooklyn’s Finest” and “Olympus Has Fallen” along with music videos for Prince and Stevie Wonder.

IM Global is in post-production on three thrillers: “Autobahn,” directed by Eran Creevy and starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley; “Viral,” directed by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost; and “Incarnate,” starring Aaron Eckhart and directed by Brad Peyton. It’s also in pre-production on Billy Ray’s “The Secret in Their Eyes,” starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Roberts.

“Antoine is such a great creative force whose career is going from strength to strength and we look forward to helping him and Kat take their company to the next level as a production powerhouse,” said IM Global CEO Stuart Ford.

The deal was brokered by CAA. Attorney Wendy Kirk of Ziffren Brittenham represented Fuqua Films. Deborah Zipser and Matt Jackson negotiated on behalf of IM Global.
