Manager and producer Steve Golin has closed a two-year second-look deal with filmmakers Ridley Scott and Tony Scott and their production company Scott Free. Golin will submit projects to Scott Free and Fox after fulfilling his first-look obligation to USA Films.
In a joint statement, Ridley Scott and Tony Scott noted that “like us, Steve has evolved into films from advertising.” The duo called Golin “a great producer with a stellar collection of films under his belt.”
Golin was equally effusive.
“I have known and admired Ridley and Tony for many years and have tremendous respect for the films they have directed and produced,” said Golin. “I am excited to be developing and producing films with individuals of their caliber.”
The Scotts are owners and chairmen of RSA, one of the larger commercial production houses in the world. In October 2001, Scott Free entered into a producing and directing deal with Fox Filmed Entertainment.
As a producer, Golin’s credits include “Being John Malkovich” and “Nurse Betty.” He has been a producer of films for a number of directors including David Fincher (“The Game”), Barry Levinson (“Sleepers”) and David Lynch (“Wild at Heart”).
He is best known as the founder and CEO of Anonymous Content, a multimedia production and talent and literary management company representing directors including David Fincher, David Kellogg, Mark Romanek, Andrew Douglas and Malcolm Venville for commercials and musicvideos, and managing such talent as Aaron Eckhart, Tony Goldwyn, Tom Everett Scott, Todd Field, Snoop Dogg, Stephen Gaghan and Donald Margulies.
