Seann William Scott Stepping Up To Production
Seann William Scott and screenwriter Steve Conrad have formed a company to help bring together directors, writers and actors for shorts, features, documentaries and episodic Web content according to the Hollywood Reporter. The two have named their new company Elephant Pictures.
The pair met when Scott starred in Conrad’s 2008 film “The Promotion”. Scott and Conrad bonded thanks to shared sense of humor and a desire to exercise more control over projects they are involved in on the creative side. They also plan to launch a website to deliver fresh content and introduce new writers and directors. Both men admitted the current economic climate attributed to their decision as opening their own company allows them greater control over projects they work on and who they work with.
Elephant Pictures will be based in Chicago, but the pair has no intention of abandoning Hollywood Projects. Both Scott and Conrad plan to work on projects independent of Elephant Pictures. The first of the companies Web based content is due out this summer.
