Brad Pitt’s celebrated production company Plan B is said to be looking at several options, including a complete sale.
It has emerged that Plan B Entertainment, the production company that has made its name leveraging critical and commercial success from interesting stories (and the odd crowd-pleasing blockbuster), is actively seeking deals with investors that could include a complete sale.
The news may dismay fans of Plan B’s output as the production company, which was founded by Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston in 2001 (Aniston is not involved anymore), has steadily built a slate of films that do an admirable job of balancing commercial success with artistic integrity. Not to mention sometimes giving a major platform to stories from less represented backgrounds.
Over the past two decades, the production company has released films such as The Departed, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Kick-Ass, Moneyball, World War Z, 12 Years A Slave, Selma, The Big Short, Moonlight, The Lost City Of Z, Vice, Ad Astra, Minari and Blonde, which has just released on Netflix.
Other boutique production companies such as A24 have also actively sought out investment of late, and things could well go in that direction, with Plan B taking a considerable amount of investment capital onboard. However, should the process end in a total sale, it will herald a spell of uncertainty where fans wait to see just what type of company will emerge under the stewardship of new owners. We’ll bring you more on this one as we hear it.
