AFTER THE WEDDING
Riverstone Pictures was formed in 2014 by Academy Award-nominated US producer Deepak Nayar and veteran British film financier Nik Bower. Backed by India’s Reliance Entertainment, the company was established to produce and finance theatrical feature films and high quality television for the global marketplace. From our offices in London and Los Angeles, we focus on prestige, film-maker driven projects that combine critical and commercial appeal.
Since Riverstone opened for business, we have financed twenty major motion pictures, from film-makers including Karyn Kusama, Julian Schnabel, Harmony Korine, Taylor Sheridan and Stanley Tucci among many others. Our films have premiered in Berlin, Toronto, Venice, Sundance and SXSW. They have showcased the talents of some of the finest actors in the world, including Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Jude Law, Laura Linney, Matthew MacConaughey, Oscar Isaac, Keanu Reeves, Dev Patel, Anna Kendrick, Jamie Foxx, Michelle Monaghan, Liam Neeson, Anna Paquin, Ludacris, Geoffrey Rush, Naomi Ackie, Armie Hammer, Gabriel Iglesias, Jesse Eisenberg, Sam Claflin, Clemence Poesy, Elizabeth Olsen and Jeremy Renner.
The development of our production slate is led by Jeremy Baxter. Jeremy started his career at Focus Features and Universal Pictures International, before joining the original team at Protagonist Pictures where he nurtured the careers of film-makers such as Nicolas Winding Refn, Ben Wheatley, Lenny Abrahamson, John Michael McDonagh, Yann Demange and Yorgos Lanthimos.
The company’s film and television financing activities are managed by Nicolas Sandler, a senior executive whose experience spans the range from negotiating single-picture independent film deals to structuring major studio slate co-financings. Leo Hugh-Jones is our head of legal and business affairs.
