Given the monster success of his own Knives Out, a film that blasted beyond any reasonable expectations back in 2019, launching a new franchise which will see two sequels come to Netflix over the coming years, Rian Johnson and partner Ram Bergman have allied their production company T-Street with Knives Out Studio MRC films to release 3 to 4 low-budget movies per year from emerging filmmakers.
The venture, which was announced by the T-Street principals and MRC’s Brye Adler and Jonathan Golfman, will produce three to four features a year from up-and-coming filmmakers, with creative and financial backing from the companies. T-Street’s Ben LeClair will oversee day-to-day management on the yet-to-be-named label.
Johnson and Bergman, who have worked together since Johnson’s 2005 breakout indie, Brick, said, “We’ve experienced the importance of having partners like MRC who understand and protect a filmmaker’s vision, and that becomes all the more crucial when you’re navigating these waters for the first or second time. For us, this is about finding and working with great people as much as it is about making great films.”
