Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman – on the cusp of rolling out their thriller Knives Out – have launched T-Street, a company with the intent of generating original content for film and TV. Fully capitalized by Valence Media, Johnson and Bergman can develop, produce and finance projects.
T-Street comes directly out of the experience Johnson and Bergman had in making Knives Out, a package that Deadline revealed on the eve of last Toronto. It was something that came together lightning quick to take advantage of an unexpected hiatus for Daniel Craig between when Danny Boyle exited and Cary Fukunaga took the directing reins of the James Bond film No Time To Die. The Agatha Christie-style whodunit was expected to be the hot project of the last TIFF market, but didn’t last that long.
“We were about to go to Toronto right after speaking to you about Knives Out, but we didn’t make it there because MRC came in with an aggressive and creative deal and we canceled the trip,” Bergman told Deadline. “It was exactly six weeks from the moment we talked with you to when we started filming.”
Knives Out stars Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Colette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, LaKeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell and Christopher Plummer.
Best of luck for the new venture, and be sure to check out Knives Out when it arrives 27th November.
