Jason Reitman Has Right of Way


Variety reports that Juno helmer Jason Reitman has started a new production company, titled Right of Way Films. The company has a development partnership with Indian Paintbrush, the financing and production company headed by billionaire Steven Rales.

Reitman closed his former production company, Hard C, a couple of months ago and parted ways with his longtime producer, Dan Dubiecki.

The plan is for Right of Way to develop and package projects in-house. Reitman says the films are intended to be directing vehicles for him, but some could become producing projects.

On the slate are new scripts by Jenny Lumet and the Duplass brothers. And two former Hard C projects — ninja comedy Bonzai Shadowhands and football film Whispers in Bedlam — transfer to Right of Way.
