Vancouver-based studio to fully finance and produce two features on Southpaw’s slate.
Bron Studios has signed a deal with Southpaw Entertainment to fully finance and produce two features on Southpaw’s slate.

Craig Styles and centres on an ambitious young architect who becomes an unwitting pawn in an international conspiracy.
Richard B. Lewis and Aaron L. Gilbert will produce with Southpaw’s head of production Gabrielle Jerou and Bron’s production executive Margot Hand co-producing.
Creative Artists Agency brokered the deal on behalf of Southpaw and will represent the film’s domestic distribution rights.
Southpaw is in pre-production on Tom Vaughan’s How To Make Love Like An Englishman, starring Pierce Brosnan, Kristen Scott Thomas and Jessica Alba, while Bron is currently in pre-production on Welcome To Me, starring Kristen Wiig and co-produced with Gary Sanchez Productions.
