Huayi Brothers Media

Dennis
Wang

Founder / Chairman

More reclusive brother Dennis Wang (aka Wang Zhongjun), along with the younger James (aka Wang Zhonglei), started Huayi Brothers as an advertising company in 1994 but transitioned into film. While Dennis is responsible for business and James keeps an eye on talent, both have creative ideals and entrepreneurial smarts. The company was once compared to Miramax for its indie flair.

Admired for their professionalism and corporate governance, the siblings are still trying to outrun China’s encroaching Internet giants. In Hollywood, the brothers got near the altar with Studio 8 but instead signed an equity and co-production pact with STX.
