Evolution Entertainment is an American independent entertainment management and film production company. The company was founded in 1998 by Mark Burg and Oren Koules and is best known for producing the Saw franchise.
Gregg Hoffman joined the company in 2003 as Head of Production. The box office success of the horror film Saw led to a distribution deal with Lionsgate and the formation of Twisted Pictures. Hoffman unexpectedly died on December 4, 2005.
In August 2005, the lead actor in Saw, Cary Elwes, filed a lawsuit against Evolution Entertainment, who were his managers at the time, stating he was promised a minimum of one percent of the producers' net profits of the film and did not receive the full amount. The case eventually was settled out of court and in 2010, Elwes reprised his role in Saw 3D.
