'Nightcrawler' Producer Inks First-Look Deal With eOne

Entertainment One has inked a first-look deal with David Lancaster’s newly launched Rumble Films.

eOne will get a first stab at financing and distributing upcoming Rumble film titles.

Lancaster is launching Rumble Films after eight years as co-president of Bold Films.

His producer credits include Whiplash, the Sundance award-winner starring Miles Teller; the Jake Gyllenhaal-starrer Nightcrawler by director Dan Gilroy; and The Coup, which stars Owen Wilson, Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell, and will be released by The Weinstein Company.

While at Bold Films, Lancaster oversaw production on Drive, starring Ryan Gosling and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

eOne's multi-year deal covers all feature films produced by Rumble Films, and Lancaster will consult on eOne’s own film production slate.

"We wanted to sign this deal before David’s doors even opened, and we are thrilled to be in business with Rumble,” said eOne film production president Xavier Marchand in a statement.
