Platinum Dunes is an American production company founded in November 2001 by filmmakers Michael Bay, Brad Fuller,[1] and Andrew Form.[2] The company produces horror films, such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Purge, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Ouija, A Quiet Place, and A Quiet Place Part II. It also produces television series, such as Black Sails, The Last Ship, and Jack Ryan.

On October 7, 2009, Paramount Pictures announced a first-look deal with Platinum Dunes. With this, they plan to branch out of the horror genre into action and thrillers. On May 27, 2010, it was announced they would work on the reboot to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film series of the same name.[3] In 2014, Platinum Dunes was named The Hollywood Reporter's Producers of the Year. In 2015, the company was also named to The Hollywood Reporter's 30 Most Powerful Film Producers in Hollywood. In 2018, Fuller and Form made an amicable split from Platinum Dunes to launch a new production company, Fully Formed Entertainment.[4] In June 2022, Fuller returned to Platinum Dunes, with the company signing an overall first-look deal with Universal Pictures.[5]
