Cerenzie-Peters Productions Forms

Producers Michael Cerenzie and Christine Peters have formed Cerenzie-Peters Productions, aimed at adapting graphic novels, comic books, novels and video games.

The duo will announce their first film later this month; that project will have a first-look at Paramount through Peters’ deal. Cerenzie and Peters told Variety they plan to develop projects similar to Midway video game “Area 51” — which graphic novelist Grant Morrison is adapting for Paramount with Peters producing — as well as specialty films.

“With Michael’s experience in modestly budgeted, darker-themed dramas and action thrillers, and his interest in a large library that includes some of the leading graphic novelists, horror, science-fiction and fantasy writers, we control the kind of properties that target today’s youth demographic,” Peters said.
