Rian Johnson Ram Bergman Producing Deal Warner Bros; Shoot Knives Out 3 This Year

As they prepare to start the third installment of the Knives Out trilogy with Daniel Craig to shoot later this year, T-Street partners Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman have made a two-picture producing deal with the Warner Bros Motion Picture Group.

T-Street becomes the latest in a flurry of A-listers to align with studio co-Chairs and CEOs Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, after they made alliances with Tom Cruise and stepped up to acquire a film that reunites writer/director Ryan Coogler and Michael B Jordan in a period genre film to shoot later this year.

Johnson and Bergman will have two “put” pictures, meaning the studio will make what they agree on. Their most recently produced film like that was American Fiction, the Cord Jefferson directorial debut that was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar among five noms; Jefferson won Best Adapted screenplay. T-Street also produced the Sundance drama Fair Play, the Emmy-nominated series Poker Face, and the upcoming sci-fi series adaptation 3 Body Problem with Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. This is their first alliance with Warner Bros.

“Rian and Ram are the masterminds of so many wildly entertaining films and are a brilliant creative duo who will be right at home among the Warner Bros Motion Picture Group family of storytellers who are working to bring more great movies to theatergoers globally,” De Luca and Abdy said in a statement. “As Warner Bros Discovery continues to invest in the future of entertainment for audiences of all ages, we are beyond excited to have Rian and Ram here with us.”

Said Johnson and Bergman: “Mike and Pam’s renewed commitment to original storytelling and the theatrical experience make Warner Bros Discovery an ideal place to help us bring the filmmakers we love to audiences around the world on a grand scale.”

T-Street also produced Knives Out and Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, latter of which was the first of two pics for Netflix for more than $400 million. Before that, Johnson wrote/directed and Bergman produced Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi, and Looper.

CAA and attorney Stephen Clark repped T-Street in the deal.
