Electus and Insurgent Media, the newly formed prodco from The Cove‘s producer Fisher Stevens, have announced an exclusive partnership. The two companies will pair together on the creation and production of an as-yet-unnamed feature documentary about decisions to be co-directed by Stevens and The Cove writer Mark Monroe. The independently financed doc, co-created by Ben Silverman, Stevens and Sean Carver, will look at the diversity of decisions made in the same day from around the globe. Electus will own the global distribution rights for the film including television, theatrical and digital, with the theatrical release earmarked for 2011. Drew Buckley, chief operating officer of Electus, tells realscreen, ‘When Ben started Electus the simple thesis was to partner with the best talent and storytellers and our announcement to partner with Academy Award winner Fisher Stevens is one of many steps towards building Electus as a destination for creative communities to produce great content.’
