Daniel Kaluuya is taking creative matters into his own hands.
Full story below…
The African actor has enjoyed success with performances in ‘Black Mirror’, ‘Silent Witness’ ‘Get Out” and Black Panther’ and is using his power to create opportunities for other players by creating his own production company.
Its name? 59%.
Over the years, I’ve been blessed to make work that speaks to audiences I identify with whilst pushing the envelope on what’s possible. 59% will be the home to continue that in a producorial capacity, to bridge the gap between the next wave of storytellers and studios. I’m excited that in Paramount Players, I have found a partner that shares the same drive and belief to make cinema that is honest, reflective, inclusive and authored.
Paramount Players’ Executive VPs of Development Ali Bell and Matt Dines feel the same way….
Daniel Kaluuya has always made fearless and bold choices as an actor–pushing the conversation and redefining contemporary culture. Knowing he has the same passion and integrity as a producer made him an obvious fit to partner with Paramount Players. We are so excited to partner with Daniel on the launch of his company and create a platform for a new generation of filmmakers.
Exciting times for an exceptional actor.
