Andrew Form and Brad Fuller, the producers behind the horror hit A Quiet Place, have launched the shingle Fully Formed Entertainment. The new production company has also inked a three-year, exclusive first-look deal with Paramount that will go into effect in August 2019.

Form and Fuller founded Platinum Dunes with director Michael Bay in 2001, setting down roots at Paramount in 2008. While with Platinum Dunes, the two worked on horror remakes of the classics The Amityville Horror, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th. This year's A Quiet Place grossed $335 million on a $17 million budget, becoming one of the studio's most profitable movies of the year.

"I started Platinum Dunes with two of my closest friends in 2001," Bay said Friday in a statement. "Our goal was to help young directors get their start in feature films, and we've been incredibly successful and had a lot of fun doing it. I've watched as Brad and Drew have grown and matured into incredibly talented, seasoned professionals. I've always encouraged my partners to take on new challenges. They’ve become the best at what they do in a highly competitive genre. I am proud of what we've accomplished together, and I couldn't be happier as they embark on this new chapter of their careers."

Added Form and Fuller: "Michael Bay has been our mentor for 18 years and the lessons we learned from him are the building blocks that have allowed us to create Fully Formed Entertainment. Michael brought us into the Paramount family, and our experience at this studio for the last 10 years has been so rewarding that we are excited to continue working with the stellar team at Paramount.”

Form, Fuller and Bay will produce the Quiet Place sequel and a new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, both of which will be made under the Platinum Dunes banner.
