Camp Cretaceous’ Creator Launches Production Company – Deadline
EXCLUSIVE: Zack Stentz, writer of blockbusters Thor and X-Men: First Class and creator of Netflix’s Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, is teaming up with producer Geoffrey James Clark (The 2nd) to launch production company Electric Brain Entertainment.
Named after the Chinese characters that form the Mandarin word for computer, the LA-based film and TV firm will develop and produce genre-driven, IP-based and original content.
Stentz and Clark previously sold a scripted pilot to Apple+ in 2019 based on the Arabian Nights IP, and concocted a re-imaging of The Island Of Dr. Moreau with production partner Gunpowder & Sky, where Clark previously had a production deal.
Clark most recently produced Ryan Phillippe action movie The 2nd, which was sold to multiple markets by Voltage Pictures.
Stentz said: “Like a lot of writers, the enforced shutdown of the pandemic ended up lighting a creative fire in me. After a career spent largely playing in established franchises, I was seized with a desire to make new worlds and new stories. And with the entertainment industry in a period of unprecedented change and upheaval, Geoff and I realized that this was the perfect time for us to create and find those stories and share them with the world.”
“I’m delighted to partner with a prolific writer in Zack”, Clark said. “It’s rare to find a talent like Zack that can write blockbuster films, indie films, television series and even animated series – and I’m confident together we will be an unstoppable force”.
