Fremantle announces a first-look deal with Nevermind Pictures, the production company from screenwriter Dylan Meyer, filmmaker and actor Kristen Stewart and producer Maggie McLean.

Under the multi-year partnership, Fremantle will become the primary home for all of Nevermind’s film and TV projects, including a wide range of titles encompassing films, drama and documentaries. Spearheaded by CEO Global Drama Christian Vesper and COO Global Drama Seb Shorr, the deal will see Nevermind Pictures work closely together with Fremantle’s Global Drama division and international distribution team.

Christian Vesper, CEO Global Drama at Fremantle, says: “We are incredibly excited to join forces with Kristen, Dylan and Maggie and collaborate on their bold and inventive projects. The Nevermind team’s combined experience and talent are exceptional, and we are sure that Fremantle will be the natural home for their original, fresh perspective.

Nevermind Pictures has been co-founded by filmmaker and Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and actor Kristen Stewart, screenwriter Dylan Meyer and producer Maggie McLean. Their roles will vary on each project with Kristen directing, writing and/or acting, Dylan directing and writing and all three partners producing.

Kristen Stewart, Dylan Meyer and Maggie McLean say: "We are emphatically thrilled to be partnering with such esteemed and like-minded creative partners. We're blown away by the talent Fremantle has amassed under their umbrella and can't wait to cut our teeth on our initial forays alongside them."

The founders of Nevermind join a prestigious collective of creatives at Fremantle, with other first-look deals already in place with the likes of Pablo and Juan de Dios Larraín’s Fabula, Luca Guadagnino, Paolo Sorrentino, Angelina Jolie, and Rachel Weisz and Polly Stokes’ Astral Projection.
