Stefan Sonnenfeld inks Paramount deal

Company 3 founder also unveils new production label

In an unusual move, Paramount Pictures has inked a first-look deal with post-production guru Stefan Sonnenfeld and his newly formed production label.

It was Sonnenfeld’s role as founder and prexy of post-production house Company 3 that prompted Paramount Film Group prexy Adam Goodman to ink the pact.

Stefan is uniquely positioned to help us find and develop emerging voices in other mediums,” Goodman said.

Sonnenfeld’s feature background includes working closely with director Michael Bay on Paramount’s “Transformers” and “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” and with J.J. Abrams on “Star Trek” and “Cloverfield,” also both from Par.

Sonnenfeld also worked with Gore Verbinski on Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise and with Zack Snyder on Warner Bros.’ “300” and “Watchmen.”

Upcoming projects include the next installments in the “Transformers” and “Pirates” franchises.

Sonnenfeld’s commercial clients include Nike.

“With post-production playing such a large role in the filmmaking process these days, leveraging my knowledge, skills, resources and relationships opens up many different possibilities in this new partnership,” Sonnenfeld said.
