Element Pictures Sign First-Look Production Pact with Fox Searchlight Pictures
26 Sep 2018 :
Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents of Production for Film and Television Matthew Greenfield and David Greenbaum announced today that Element Pictures and Fox Searchlight Pictures have signed a first-look production deal for all theatrical films.

Element Pictures is run by Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe, with offices in Dublin and London, working across production, distribution, and exhibition.  Element Pictures is currently working with Fox Searchlight Pictures, Film4, Waypoint Entertainment and producers Ceci Dempsey (of Scarlet Films) and Lee Magiday on ‘The Favourite’ directed by Yorgos Lanthimos with Olivia Colman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz. The film is set for release on November 23, 2018 in North America and January 1, 2019 in the UK.

Speaking about the deal, Greenbaum and Greenfield said:

We have loved working with Ed and Andrew on The Favourite. They are brilliant producers who have deep relationships with some of the most unique and important directorial voices in the world. We enter this partnership with a shared commitment to bringing ground-breaking, ambitious works to the screen.”

Guiney and Lowe said:

David and Matthew and the team at Searchlight are wonderful collaborators; they have great taste, are incisive, astute and very supportive. Our experience working together on The Favourite has demonstrated that we have a shared sensibility and a strong ambition to make truly distinctive and outstanding work together. “

Element Pictures recent productions include Sebastian Lelio’s ‘Disobedience’, starring Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams; Yorgos Lanthimos’ ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’, starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman; ‘Room’, an onscreen adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s award-winning novel directed by Lenny Abrahamson and starring Brie Larson; and Yorgos Lanthimos’ ‘The Lobster’, starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz. The much-hyped ‘Rosie’, written by Roddy Doyle and directed by Paddy Breathnach will be released in Irish Cinemas on October 12th.

Fox Searchlight Pictures is a specialty film company that both finances and acquires motion pictures. It has its own marketing and distribution operations, and its films are distributed internationally by Twentieth Century Fox. Fox Searchlight Pictures is a unit of Twentieth Century Fox Film. Recent award-winning productions include ‘The Shape of Water’, ‘Birdman’, ‘12 Years a Slave’ and ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’.
