Wayne Marc Godfrey Steps Down at ‘Meters Down’ Producer The Fyzz Facility

Wayne Marc Godfrey has stepped down as a director and co-CEO of The Fyzz Facility, the London- and Los Angeles-based film and television production and financing house responsible for such movies as box-office breakout “47 Meters Down,” Martin Campbell’s “The Foreigner,” starring Jackie Chan, and “Strangers: Prey at Night,” starring Christina Hendricks.

Godfrey remains a shareholder of the firm, which he co-founded with Robert Jones (“The Usual Suspects”) in 2008. Jones continues in his role as CEO. In a statement, Godfrey said it was “an extreme difficult decision” to step down “despite working tirelessly and relentlessly to build the company from an idea in 2008 to become one of the leading global entertainment financing and production houses.”

The company’s forthcoming theatrical movies include “Destination Wedding,” starring Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, and set for release in August, and “A Private War,” which stars Rosamund Pike and Jamie Dornan and has been slated for an awards-season release in November. It also backed crime movie “Gotti,” starring John Travolta, and Dee Rees’ upcoming Anne Hathaway-starrer “The Last Thing He Wanted,” which was acquired by Netflix.

Upcoming projects financed and produced by The Fyzz Facility include thriller “Three Seconds,” starring Rosamund Pike, Joel Kinnaman and Clive Owen, and “Final Score,” starring Dave Bautista and Pierce Brosnan.

Its past credits include Taylor Sheridan’s “Wind River,” starring Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen; Martin Scorsese’s “Silence,” starring Liam Neeson; Rob Reiner’s “Shock and Awe,” starring Woody Harrelson; and “On Chesil Beach,” starring Saoirse Ronan.
