Blueprint Pictures is a London-based film production company established in 2004 by Graham Broadbent and Pete Czernin.
Blueprint's first two productions were both released in 2007. These were Julian Jarrold's Becoming Jane, starring Anne Hathaway and James McAvoy, which was cited by Variety as the â€œindependent hit of the summer;â€� and Gregory Jacobs' Wind Chill, starring Emily Blunt and executive-produced by George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh. In Bruges is the company's third production.
Currently in development is Skullduggery Pleasant, based on the first book in Derek Landy's best-selling children's horror/fantasy series. Also in development are These Foolish Things, scripted by Deborah Moggach; a film version of Steven Hall's cult novel The Raw Shark Texts; and a screen adaptation of Danny Wallace's comic novel Join Me.
Graham Broadbent is one of the U.K.'s most active independent producers, having made 10 films in the last 11 years. Among them is Michael Winterbottom's Welcome to Sarajevo, which screened In Competition at the 1997 Cannes International Film Festival and was cited by Time Magazine as one of the year's 10 Best Films. More recently, in addition to the aforementioned Blueprint titles, he has produced Danny Boyle's Millions, which won the 2005 British Independent Film Award for Best Screenplay (Frank Cottrell Boyce), and Pete Hewitt's Thunderpants.
Pete Czernin worked for eight years in Los Angeles, including a period as president of DiNovi Pictures. There, he worked on such movies as Luis Mandoki's Message in a Bottle, starring Kevin Costner, and Griffin Dunne's Practical Magic, starring Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock.
