Anton Secures New $100M from BlackRock for film, TV production

Anton Capital Entertainment has secured more than €100 million ($108 million) in new financing to bankroll film and television projects as the Sébastien Raybaud-led group sets off its next stage of expansion.

The company said the facility, supplied by a group of institutional investors, led by funds and accounts managed by BlackRock, will allow Anton to boost its production of large-scale commercial European English-language projects, specifically genre films from action and thrillers to elevated horror and sci-fi.

“We have an amazing development and production team in place focused on creating high quality, premium entertainment,” said Raybaud in a statement. “Our goal is to produce films and series across all commercial genres on a global scale,. This exciting investment from BlackRock allows us to greenlight more ambitious projects, and expand these partnerships with exceptional film and TV producers.”

Anton’s target is to produce ten features a year. Upcoming films include actioner Greenland 2 starring Gerard Butler and Morena Baccarin; Claude Barras’ animated feature Savages which enjoyed its world premiere in Cannes; David Mackenzie’s Fuze starring Aaron Taylor Johnson; Adam Elliott’s upcoming stop animation feature Memoir of a Snail, and S. Craig Zahler’s The Bookie & The Bruiser starring Vince Vaughn and Adrien Brody.
