Year-old Broad Green, founded by brothers Gabriel and Daniel Hammond, has been active in building a slate of adult-themed dramas, such as “99 Homes,” “A Walk in the Woods,” “Infiltrator” and “Learning to Drive,” as well as Terrence Malick’s “Knight of Cups,” “Voyage of Time” and his untitled project starring Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara and Michael Fassbender.
Universal will exclusively manage back-room distribution services for all Broad Green titles for Blu-ray and DVD, with Broad Green Pictures continuing to handle sales and marketing across all platforms. Broad Green will distribute up to 16 specialty and wide release film per year.
“Partnering with Universal Home Entertainment allows us to develop a strong distribution model that sets up the studio for lasting success,” said Steve Nickerson, president of Broad Green’s home entertainment operations. “I have had the pleasure of working with their team many times in the past, always with successful results, and am confident that our partnership will yield positive growth for Broad Green.”
