Neon Partnering With ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’ Producers


Neon, the indie studio behind “Parasite” and “Anatomy of a Fall,” has tapped the producers of “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” Jon Read and Allison Rose Carter, to lead their growing production arm. Read and Carter are the co-founders of Savage Rose Films.

The pact comes as Neon has moved more aggressively into developing and producing its own movies, instead of focusing purely on acquiring completed films. The company’s recent foray into production have included Brandon Cronenberg’s “Infinity Pool,” Bishal Dutta’s “It Lives Inside,” Theda Hammel’s “Stress Positions,” Jazmin Jones’s “Seeking Mavis Beacon” and Tilman Singer’s “Cuckoo.” This new in-house focus also includes upcoming projects from Joshua Oppenheimer, Boots Riley and David Robert Mitchell. Under the terms of the deal, Neon will have a first-look at Savage Rose Films’ roster of projects while Read and Carter will also run Neon’s productions, reporting to Jeff Deutchman, the company’s head of acquisitions and productions.

Carter and Read have produced and co-produced over 20 films together. They started their banner Savage Rose Films in 2018 with the goal of “creating impactful, compassionate, sustainable films that highlight important voices.” Of embarking on this new endeavor, they say, “We love the kind of risks Neon takes with filmmakers at the forefront of the cinematic conversation; we look forward to this collaboration.”

In addition to the Oscar-winning “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” Carter and Read have produced Andrea Arnold’s “American Honey,” Josephine Decker’s “Madeline’s Madeline,” Rick Alverson’s “The Mountain,” Janicza Bravo’s “Zola,” and Dustin Guy Defa’s “The Adults.”

In a sign that it’s looking to ramp things up, Neon recently announced it had formed new financial partnership with Ken Kao’s Waypoint Entertainment, the production company with which they collaborated on Tilman Singer’s “Cuckoo.”

Neon’s recent releases include Wim Wenders’ “Perfect Days” and Pablo Berger’s “Robot Dreams.” Its upcoming slate includes Steven Soderbergh’s “Presence”; David Robert Mitchell’s “They Follow” starring Maika Monroe; as well as Pamela Adlon’s “Babes,” starring Ilana Glazer, and “Immaculate” starring Sydney Sweeney, both of which premiered at SXSW.
