The Stone Quarry: Zack Snyder launches new production company
Zack Snyder took to his Vero account to officially announce his new production company, named The Stone Quarry. The new company will work on film, television, and animation, and which Snyder described as a “sacred creative space” that was four years in the making.
“New Year. New Identity. After 14 amazing years making groundbreaking entertainment under the Cruel & Unusual Films Moniker, we’re excited to unveil our new company identity as we move into 2019 and beyond,” Snyder said in a statement (via CBR). “Although Cruel & Unusual Films will always be a proud part of our legacy, our new and exciting future creative endeavors will be mined, chiseled and honed in THE STONE QUARRY.”
Snyder’s previous banner, Cruel & Unusual Films, was where he put together the films 300 starring Gerard Butler (How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World) and Lena Headey (Game of Thrones); Watchmen, the 2009 film starring Patrick Wilson (Conjuring), and Malin Akerman; DC Films’ Man of Steel, the first film in the DCEU; Justice League, and others.
Currently, the filmmaker is working on his next film project titled The Fountainhead, a new adaptation of Ayn Rand’s 1943 novel of the same name.
