‘Whiplash’ Producer David Lancaster Launches Company (EXCLUSIVE)

After eight years as co-president at Bold Films, David Lancaster has launched Rumble as a production-development-financing company.

Rumble is already in negotiations with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to develop spy thriller “Tin Man” from a script by Seth Lochhead (“Hanna”). The “28 Weeks Later” director is developing “Tin Man” with producer Laura Bickford.

The move comes with Lancaster having a pair of Bold Films titles opening in the fall: Sundance Grand Jury prize winner “Whiplash” at Sony Classics and Jake Gyllenhaal’s crime thriller “Nightcrawler”at Open Road.

Lancaster has hired Jon Shiffman, formerly of Comerica Bank and Media Rights Capital, as the CFO and COO. Stephanie Wilcox, former director of development at Bold, has come on as VP of development and production.

Rumble’s slate is focused on auteur-driven film and TV projects with appeal to a global marketplace. Its first project is “Children of the Gun,” a dystopian parable written by Will Dunn and directed by Belgian filmmaker Fabrice du Welz, whose “Alleluia” screened at the Director’s Fortnight at Cannes and was picked up by Music Box for North American rights.

During Lancaster’s tenure at Bold, he oversaw Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” and Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut “Lost River” along with TV drama “The Black Box” for ABC and Syfy’s new series “Dominion,” based on Bold’s feature film “Legion.”

Lancaster’s been involved in over 35 movies including “night, Mother,” “A Love Song for Bobby Long,” “Bobby” and “Middle of Nowhere.” He produced ‘night, Mother” on Broadway and returned to Broadway this season with the musical production of “The Bridges of Madison County,” both with long-time colleague Marsha Norman.
