Phoenix Pictures is an American film production company that has produced films since the late 1990s with features including Black Swan (2010), Shutter Island (2010), The People vs. Larry Flynt (1996), The Thin Red Line (1998), and Zodiac (2007).[1] Producers Mike Medavoy and Arnold Messer founded Phoenix in November 1995 as an independent production company. They acquired financing from Onex Corporation, Pearson Television, and Sony Pictures Entertainment.[2][3] Its business model was based on packaging films to present to studios and to then navigate the films' development. Variety said Phoenix Pictures was one of the few companies to produce more than 25 films with the same executive team in place.[1]
