Hard C twosome parting ways

Jason Reitman, Daniel Dubiecki to focus on different areas

Jason Reitman and Daniel Dubiecki are dissolving their Hard C production banner and heading their separate ways.

The pair, who count such movies as "Juno," the upcoming Liam Neeson starrer "Chloe" and the upcoming Diablo Cody pic "Jennifer's Body" among their joint credits, will focus on different areas.

Reitman, helmer of such hits as "Juno" and "Thank You for Smoking," will concentrate on directing, and Dubiecki is expected to form a new banner, taking a number of Hard C projects with him.

The two, who parted amicably, will be involved jointly on one project that has yet to shoot -- they each serve as an exec producer on Max Winkler's indie wedding comedy "The Ceremony," though not via Hard C.

Hard C formed several years ago with the goal of producing Reitman's pictures as well as films from other directors. Among its wrapped projects are the George Clooney business-travel dramedy "Up in the Air," which Reitman directed, and "Body," which Karyn Kusama helmed.

The company also has a development slate that includes the has-been ninja tale "Bonzai Shadowhands" and the art-theft comedy "Pierre Pierre." Dubiecki is expected to take at least several pics from that slate to his new banner.
