CANNES: Jeremy Renner Bolsters Production Company in Deal with Demarest, Kilburn

Demarest Films and Kilburn Media have partnered on a first-look overall deal with Jeremy Renner’s The Combine production banner.

The actor founded The Combine in 2011 with writer-director Don Handfield.  The new pact will cover the Combine’s overhead costs and provide it with funds for acquisition and development of new projects, in exchange for the first opportunity to produce and finance all product the company originates.

Sam Englebardt and William D. Johnson of Demarest and Mark Manuel and Ted O’Neal of Kilburn will work with Renner and Handfield.

The Combine produced “Kill the Messenger,” starring Renner as journalist Gary Webb, with Bluegrass Films. It’s set for a fall release by Focus Features.

The Combine is developing auto racing drama “Slingshot” with FilmNation and Endgame Entertainment as a starring vehicle for Renner as well as “King of Heists” with Black Bear Pictures. The company has also produced “The Throwaways,” which  premiere later this year on Crackle.

CAA brokered the deal with Demarest Films and Kilburn Media on behalf of The Combine.
