The H Collective has several production deals with prominent producers including visionary James Gunn, with whom they are currently in production on an untitled horror thriller directed by David Yarovesky and starring Elizabeth Banks. They are currently in post-production on Christopher Cantwell’s The Parts You Lose starring Aaron Paul, Scoot McNairy and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and produced by Mark Johnson under his Gran Via banner.

The H Collective CEO Nic Crawley said: “During my time working in the studio system I’ve established a strong relationship with Josh Greenstein, President of Worldwide Marketing and Distribution and Steve Bersch, President of Worldwide Acquisitions at Sony Pictures. Their teams are the best in class, and their distribution strategies and platform are the perfect complement to our diversified slate. We’re looking forward to growing this partnership and collaborating with the entire Sony family.”
