CANNES: ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Actor Ron Perlman Launches Production Company-Film Fund

In a pre-Cannes move, veteran actor Ron Perlman has launched new production company-film fund Wing and A Prayer Pictures.

The company’s first project will be announced shortly and the company’s principals are actively looking for material and will be attending Cannes to meet with distributors and content creators.

The new company is aiming to produce and finance up to three independent films per year with “A-list talent” in dramas and “elevated” genre fare. Budgets will range from $3 million to $10 million.

Josh and Randy Crook are partners with Perlman in the new company. Jay Cohen of Gersh and Erik Kritzer and Brian Wilkins of Link Entertainment will take management positions in the company.

Perlman — best known for “Hellboy” and “Sons of Anarchy” — will produce all of the films and possibly direct and act in some. He recently produced Marc Forster’s  one-hour drama pilot “Hand Of God.”

“I am looking to create a haven for the artists that I love and admire to do what it is that they do best, which is to create beautiful cinema,” said Perlman. “I’ve always been of the mind that movies that appeal to our better angels, that are smart, evocative, original and visionary and movies that are profitable are not mutually exclusive of one another. Wing and A Prayer will strive to be exemplary of the great tradition passed down by generations of cinematic masters.”

Wilkins and Kritzer will serve as co-heads of production. Cohen will be an advisory partner.
