As a fan-owned company, we LOVE working with creators who are fans themselves. That's why we jumped at the opportunity to invest in Dean Devlin's Bad Samaritan.
With over 25 years in Hollywood, Dean's been involved with some of the biggest movies in the business. Co-creator of the Stargate franchise. Writer/Producer of hits that include Independence Day and Godzilla. He's generated billions of dollars of box office around the globe. But before any of that, Dean is a FAN.
In our first meeting, Dean shared stories of Comic Con in the 80's -- back before it was a thing. He proudly told us that his 1994 Stargate was the first movie to have a website--before the INTERNET was a thing! Spend even a few minutes with Dean and his infectious enthusiasm will make you realize that the reason he understands fans so well is because he's a fan himself. Which makes him a perfect partner for Legion M.
As a company built on a revolutionary new business model, Legion M has nothing but respect for those who innovate and take risks. While Devlin is known for his studio films, Bad Samaritan is about as independent as you can get. He didn't just produce and direct the film--he's also independently distributing it through his company Electric Entertainment.
This ambitious approach to self-distribution is almost unheard of for a wide release film like Bad Samaritan. However the ability for creators like Devlin to bypass studio gatekeepers and bring their projects directly to fans represents a new frontier in Hollywood--one that Legion M is proud to support, In fact, Legion M's ability to bridge the gap between fans and creators is what drew Dean to us, calling Legion M "one of the most interesting and innovative things in Hollywood."Legion M is proud to partner with Dean and the talented team at Electric Entertainment for the release of Bad Samaritan.
