‘The Invitation’ Filmmaker Jessica M. Thompson Inks With Verve

EXCLUSIVE: Writer, director, and producer Jessica M. Thompson has signed with Verve for representation.

She directed the Screen Gems vampire movie The Invitation, which was made for $10M, grossed $38M worldwide and was profitable for Sony. That pic starred Nathalie Emmanuel and Thomas Doherty, and debuted at #1 at the box office in late August 2022 and #2 when it hit Netflix.

Thompson is currently writing Pharmaka, an original sci-fi thriller series for TriStar Television and is attached to direct Ghost Eaters for Blumhouse. She is also developing a period-drama with Maven Pictures about Dr. James Barry, a trailblazing surgeon who was erased from history.

Previously, her feature debut The Light of the Moon premiered and won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Film at SXSW. The film stars Stephanie Beatriz and heralds a 97% Rotten Tomatoes score. She also was the lead director on the critically-acclaimed Showtime/Sky series, The End, produced by the Academy Award-winning See-Saw Films.

Thompson continues to be represented by Kaplan/Perrone and attorney, Kimberley Jaime at Jackoway Austen Tyerman.
