Kristen Stewart’s Nevermind Pictures Strikes First Look With Fremantle

Max Goldbart

Kristen Stewart is getting into business with Fremantle.

The Oscar-nominated Spencer star’s Nevermind Pictures, which she runs with Dylan Meyer and Maggie McLean, has struck a first-look deal with the super-indie, which will become the primary home for its film and TV projects. Nevermind launched quietly last year and is one of the producers behind The Challenger, Stewart’s TV series-starring debut in which she’ll play the first American woman to fly in space, revealed by Deadline two weeks ago.

The first projects under the Fremantle deal will be announced shortly and include a wide range encompassing films, drama and docs, according to the firm. Stewart, Meyer and McLean’s role will vary on each project, with Stewart directing, writing and/or acting, Meyer directing and writing, and all three partners producing.

Stewart, Meyer and McLean said: “We are emphatically thrilled to be partnering with such esteemed and likeminded creative partners. 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.” 

Fremantle has a wealth of similar talent deals in place including with the likes of Pablo Larraín, Angelina Jolie, Luca Guadagnino and Paolo Sorrentino.

Christian Vesper, Fremantle’s CEO of Global Drama, said “bold and inventive projects” will emerge from the tie-up. “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,” he added.

Stewart most recently starred in Rose Glass’s neo-noir Love Lies Bleeding. She was Oscar nominated for her portrayal of Princess Diana in Larraín’s Spencer and is a former BAFTA Rising Star, having broken through in the Twilight franchise. Meyer wrote on the Amy Poehler-directed Moxie. McLean is a producer whose past credits include Boygenius: The Film and John Bronco.
