Vertigo Entertainment


Lee’s prolific output continues unabated, with recent efforts for his Vertigo Entertainment banner including 2021 pandemic-breaker “Godzilla vs. Kong,” Amazon horror series “Them,” a Paramount+ miniseries adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Stand,” plus upcoming horror-thrillers “Cobweb” and “Don’t Worry Darling.” Lee has produced multiple movie franchises, from scare fests (“The Ring,” “The Grudge”) to animated fantasies (“How to Train Your Dragon,” “The Lego Movie”). But his biggest successes remain Warner Bros.’ two film adaptations of King’s “It” in 2017 and 2019, which collectively earned more than $1.47 billion globally. In 2020, he teamed with Steven Schneider to form genre label Spooky Pictures, which makes its debut with Chloe Okuno’s “Watcher” amid a multi-picture slate deal with Image Nation Abu Dhabi.
