Chris Bender Launches Good Fear Film + Management

A week after dissolving 18-year-old Benderspink, producer Chris Bender has launched his new shingle, Good Fear Film + Management.

Notable clients include “It Follows” director David Robert Mitchell and “Gleason” director Clay Tweel.

The new company will include Jake Weiner as a partner. Managers Jake Wagner, Daniel Vang, Scott Stoops and talent manager Ryan Revel will join Bender at the new company along with creative executives David Baggelaar and Matthew Reis.

Management clients of the new company include Jennifer Weiner (“In Her Shoes”), Allison Schroeder (“Hidden Figures”), Billy Brown (“How to Get Away with Murder”), Eddie Jemison (“Ocean’s Eleven,” “Hung”), Matt Gerald (Netflix’s “Daredevil”), Adam Busch (“Colony”) and Tiffany Dupont (“Murder in the First”).

Other clients include eight primary cast members from the Bravo series “Vanderpump Rules”: Jordan Ross (“Cruel Intentions”), Ashleigh Powell (“The Nutcracker and the Four Realms”), Victoria Aveyard (“Red Queen”), Evan Daugherty (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”), Tripper Clancy (“Stuber”), Joe Greenberg (“Man Alive”) and Barnett Brettler (“Monolith”).

Bender and JC Spink announced on May 17 that they were dissolving their 18-year-old management-production company Benderspink, which has been involved in “The Hangover” trilogy, “We’re the Millers,” “A History of Violence” and “Zombeavers.”

The duo said the split is amicable. Spink has not yet revealed his plans.
