Curtis co-wrote the script for “Blue Valentine,” starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams. He made his directorial debut with “Quattro Noza,” which was awarded for excellence in cinematography at the Sundance Film Festival.

Beaumont’s prior producing projects include “Emelie,” starring Sarah Bolger, and Helen Hunt’s surfing drama “Ride.”
