Cutting Edge Invests in ‘Everest,’ ‘Dirty Grandpa’

Music publishing rights specialist Cutting Edge Group and its investment arm Conduct have come on board six upcoming movies — “Everest,” “Message From the King,” “Dirty Grandpa,” “November Criminals,” “Unlocked” and “Army of One.”

Everest,” due out September 18 from Universal, recaps the 1996 multi-expedition assault on Everest that left eight climbers dead. Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin and John Hawkes star.

“Dirty Grandpa,” due out February 26 from Lionsgate, stars Robert De Niro and Zac Efron.

“It was a very productive Cannes for us this year and we’re excited about the quality and talent associated with these films,” Conduct managing director James Gibb said. “We’re also not done with at least another six deals in the works and more beyond that.”

Cutting Edge recently renewed its slate deal with Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures.

Seven-year-old CEG has invested in “Whiplash,” “Fury,” “John Wick,” “The King’s Speech,” “Drive,” “Looper” and “End of Watch” in exchange for music publishing rights. It handles scoring, clearances and music supervision in films, then recoups from soundtrack and sheet-music sales; licensing and royalties from international ticket sales and TV deals; and rights in TV commercials.
