“We have partnered with the Lionsgate family on films for more than 10 years, and we’re thrilled to see our partnership continue to grow with their success,” said Emmett/Furla’s Randall Emmett and George Furla.
The next film under the partnership between Grindstone and Emmett/Furla is titled “Empire State” starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
