In a move that will turn heads across the industry, Charles Cohen’s Cohen Media Group has acquired international sales company HanWay Films, the banner founded by legendary producer Jeremy Thomas (and was co-owned with his partner Peter Watson).
Under the deal, announced Thursday, HanWay will continued to be branded as an independent label selling a broad range of theatrical titles to its distribution partners worldwide. Peter Watson will continue to serve as president of the company together with Gabrielle Stewart as CEO.
Philip Knatchbull, CEO of Curzon, negotiated the transaction on behalf of Cohen Media Group.
