Film finance and production company Sculptor Media has been formed to finance and produce independent commercial film and television projects, starting with the thriller “Urge,” starring Pierce Brosnan, Ashley Greene (“Twilight”), and Alexis Knapp (“Pitch Perfect 2”).
Sculptor’s CEO Warren Goz made the announcement Tuesday. Based in New York City and Los Angeles, Goz said Sculptor has been newly funded by an unnamed New York City-based private equity firm, which is providing single picture film finance.
Eric Gold is the head of development and production and based in Los Angeles.
“Urge,” currently in post-production, is directed and co-written by Aaron Kaufman and produced by Goz, Gold and Andrew Mann. The film was shot in New York City and follows a group of young friends who, during an island holiday, experiment with a new designer drug that perilously diminishes one’s ability to control destructive urges.
Goz co-founded Grand Army Entertainment in 2005 and financed several hundred million dollars of television and film production. Mann is Sculptor’s consulting executive producer following a career in production and film finance that has spanned two decades.
