Ianno’s Indomitable has found success by creating a niche as an independent exec producer for movies with budgets up to $40 million and will assist with anything a picture needs in order to get made: planning, finding financing, strategic consulting and securing distribution. Getting a film made involves making fair and realistic deals with dozens of people, he says. “If any one of those people isn’t getting a fair shake, it’s always going to end up blowing up on you.”

KEY DEALS: Ianno was an exec producer who guided last year’s indie hit “Soul Surfer” to a $45 million domestic B.O. finish.

Indomitable built a finance consulting team for Rachel Weisz starrer “The Whistleblower” and put together the comedy “The Secret Lives of Dorks” with Jim Belushi and Jennifer Tilly. On Broadway, Indomitable is exec-producing a stage version of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and a Ray Charles musical.
