Producer Chris Bender, the former partner of production-management firm Benderspink, is launching his new venture, Good Fear Film + Management.
The new company will be based in Beverly Hills, and like Benderspink, will be focused on producing film and television as well as repping directors, writers and actors. The move comes after Bender and JC Spink parted ways after almost 18 years of running Benderspink, which was involved in such movies as We're the Millers and The Hangover.
Producer-manager Jake Weiner will join Good Fear as partner. The company also launches with managers Jake Wagner, Daniel Vang, Scott Stoops and talent manager Ryan Revel on the staff list. David Baggelaar will be a creative executive on the production side.
Among the management clients of the new company are: It Follows filmmaker David Robert Mitchell, documentary filmmaker Clay Tweel (Gleason, Finders Keepers), author Jennifer Weiner (In Her Shoes) and writers Allison Schroder (Hidden Figures), Ashleigh Powell (Disney’s The Nutcracker and the Four Realms), Victoria Aveyard (Red Queen), Evan Daugherty (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Snow White and the Huntsman), Tripper Clancy (Stuber), Joe Greenberg (Man Alive), Barnett Brettler (Monolith) and Jordan Ross (NBC’s Cruel Intentions).
Among the actors on the client roster are: Billy Brown ( ABC's How to Get Away With Murder), Eddie Jemison (The CW's iZombie), Matt Gerald (Netflix’s Daredevil), Adam Busch (USA’s Colony), Tiffany Dupont (TNT’s Murder in the First) and eight primary castmembers from the Bravo series Vanderpump Rules.
