BRON Creative, the joint venture between BRON Studios, led by Aaron L. Gilbert, and Creative Wealth Media, led by Jason Cloth, and Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) have reportedly entered into a multi-picture $100 million plus co-financing deal according to the latest press announcement from MGM.
Neil Blomkamp’s Robocop Returns is just one of the key titles listed in the agreement on which Gilbert and Cloth will also serve as exec producers in this, the first deal between MGM and Bron. The pending release of The Addams Family, an upcoming remake of The Thomas Crown Affair, the new Candyman remake which has actor Tony Todd returning, and other recent Orion titles like Child’s Play and Gretel And Hansel are also listed.
“We are excited to partner with MGM on this highly anticipated slate of films, all driven by talented filmmakers. This is another important step forward in BRON’s growth model,” said Gilbert and Cloth in a joint statement.
Said Jonathan Glickman, MGM’s Motion Picture Group President, “This multi-picture deal builds upon the growing strength of our film business with a strategic investment for the future. Building on our incredibly robust library of titles is the cornerstone of the studio’s ongoing effort to be the leading independent producer of content in our industry. We look forward to partnering with BRON on this incredible slate of movies.”
BRON has previously partnered on a multi-pic deal with Warner Bros – a $100 million dollar co-fi deal as of last year that includes Clint Eastwood drama, The Mule, and upcoming titles like graphic novel adaptation The Kitchen and DC headlining crime epic, Joker. Other studios credited include Sony, Universal and A24.
Gilbert co-founded BRON in 2010 with Brenda Gilbert with a filmmaker-first aim that inclusively focuses on strategic development, production and financing of original live-action and animated features, television, and digital media content. With upwards of 75 productions to its credit, the company continues to grow its robust slate across all platforms.
