Chris Hardwick’s Shingle Teams With Blumhouse on Three-Picture Production Deal

Chris Hardwick has launched new production shingle Spitball and teamed with Blumhouse Productions for a three-picture, first-look deal for films produced under the Blumhouse banner. Hardwick is planning on directing one of the pics and be a creative force on all three.

Hardwick and Jason Blum, founder of Blumhouse, hinted at the collaboration on Hardwick’s most recent Nerdist podcast.

“I’m a die-hard horror fan and have always wanted to be in the horror business,” Hardwick said. “Jason is an AMAZING entrepreneur, a super nice guy, and a brilliant producer who is responsible for putting out SEVERAL of my favorite films, so I am beyond excited for this partnership!”

The deal comes as Hardwick continues to expand his growing empire that includes hosting and executive producing on NBC’s “The Wall” and a multi-year deal with AMC, which sees him hosting and producing multiple programs for the network, including the highly rated “Talking Dead,” “Talking Dead: Fear Edition,” and “Talking With Chris Hardwick.”

“I was so inspired talking genre films with Chris on Nerdist, that by the end of the interview I asked if he would consider doing a film with us,” Blum said. “We met one more time later in the week and decided to make two more. Chris is a passionate genre fan and I feel lucky to be in business with him.”

Blumhouse is also coming off a banner year including box office smash hits “Split” and “Get Out.”
