Nicholas Braun’s ‘Good Kids’ Draws Financing from Compadre Entertainment

Newly launched production-financing banner Compadre Entertainment is teaming with Voltage Pictures to co-finance coming-of-age comedy “Good Kids,” starring Nicholas Braun and Zoey Deutch.

Voltage is producing alongside Depth of Field. The film wrapped shooting in Massachusetts on Thursday.

Compadre, headed by Gerard Barba and Emmanuel Paintendre, is aiming to co-finance and produce up to five movies a year with a focus on commercial material.

Voltage topper Nic Chartier said, “We’re excited to help launch this venture with Gerard and Emmanuel. It’s great to find like-minded people who share our passion for great stories and that’s what this business really needs.”

Barba said, “We’ve been talking to Voltage for some time now and can’t think of a better partner or project on which to launch this exciting new venture.”

Voltage’s producing credits include “The Hurt Locker” and “Dallas Buyers Club.”

Voltage’s Dominic Rustam brokered the deal on behalf of the company.  Glenn D. Feig negotiated on behalf of Compadre.

“Good Kids” also stars Ashley Judd, Demian Bichir and Israel Broussard (“Bling Ring”). Chris McCoy is making his directorial debut as he helms from his own script, which was featured on the 2011 Black List.

The story follows four overachieving high school students who realize that they’ve missed out on key life experiences by always being the good kids and decide to reinvent themselves before heading off to college.

Voltage launched sales on “Good Kids” at Cannes.
