Former Lucasfilm’s Senior VP Of Development, Kiri Hart is joining The Last Jedi’s director and producer team of Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman in their new studio, T-Street. She will be joined by another former Lucasfilm VP, Stephen Feder who was VP of Film Development at Lucasfilm. Both were part of the Lucasfilm Story Group.
Kiri Hart, Stephen Feder and Ben LeClair have been named producers at the company, which announced the hiring on Thursday.
According to T-Street, Hart, Feder and LeClair will “spearhead films of all sizes and scales, championing storytellers with distinct voices and building long-term partnerships with filmmakers.” The trio will shepherd projects from inception through production to release.
In a statement, Johnson and Bergman said, “We wanted T-Street to be a place where filmmakers would feel supported throughout the entire process. That thinking led us to Kiri, Stephen and Ben, who we’ve been lucky enough to work with in different capacities over the years. They are not only experienced producers committed to taking the best possible care of filmmakers and their projects, they also happen to be really good people who share our passion for making movies.”
