Kristen Stewart’s Nevermind Pictures Signs First-Look Film and TV Deal with Fremantle

Kristen Stewart’s production company Nevermind Pictures has signed a multi-year first-look deal with Fremantle for film and TV projects. Stewart’s partners in Nevermind are screenwriter Dylan Meyer (“Moxie”) and producer Maggie McLean (“Boygenius: The Film”).

Under the pact, Fremantle will become the primary home for content that comes out of Nevermind. Their first projects together will be announced shortly, the companies said on Tuesday, and will include a “wide range of titles” encompassing films, dramatic TV series, and documentaries. The Nevermind gang’s roles will vary on each project, Fremantle said, with Stewart (“Love Lies Bleeding”) directing, writing, and/or acting, Meyer directing and writing, and all three partners producing.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. A Fremantle spokesperson did not immediately respond to IndieWire’s request for more details.

Fremantle also has first-look deals with Pablo and Juan de Dios Larraín’s Fabula, Luca Guadagnino, Paolo Sorrentino, Angelina Jolie, Rachel Weisz and Polly Stokes’ Astral Projection, Edward Berger and his label Nine Hours, Johan Renck and Michael Parets’ Sinestra, and Patrick Daly’s Caledonia Productions, as well as ongoing collaborations with other acclaimed writers and directors including Michael Winterbottom. Pretty good roster right there.

“We are emphatically thrilled to be partnering with such esteemed and likeminded creative partners,” Stewart, Meyer, and McLean said in a joint statement. “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 partnership was spearheaded by Christian Vesper, Fremantle’s CEO of Global Drama and Seb Shorr, its COO of Global Drama.

“We are incredibly excited to join forces with Kristen, Dylan and Maggie and collaborate on their bold and inventive projects,” Vesper said. “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.”

Fremantle is all over the place in terms of its content offerings — and it is successful because of that diversity in programming. It puts out the “Got Talent” franchise (“America’s Got Talent,” etc.), “Neighbours,” “Password,” and Kardashians programming — but also acclaimed films like “Poor Things,” “Alice & Jack,” and “Priscilla.”
