BLUEBOX FILMS is a production company banner established in 2001 by Iowa filmmakers Scott Beck & Bryan Woods. Bluebox Films has partnered with companies including Paramount Pictures, Lionsgate, Sony, MTV, Groundswell Productions, Davis Entertainment, and Broken Road to produce feature films, shorts, commercials, and television content.
Bluebox Films has several projects in development.
Beck & Woods most recently partnered with Paramount Pictures on their original screenplay A QUIET PLACE, which will star Emily Blunt alongside John Krasinski, who will also direct. The duo will serve as executive producers, alongside Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes banner. On the heels of the sale, Paramount signed Beck & Woods to a blind script deal, which they will write and direct for the studio.
Upcoming projects include the thriller HAUNT, which Beck & Woods will write and direct for Broken Road Productions and Nickel City Pictures. They are also developing the television series ZEROES for Sony Pictures Television and Davis Entertainment, which is based on the novel by New York Times best-selling author Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti.
As teenagers, Beck & Woods were shortlisted as two of the top 50 directors (out of 2,000 applicants) for Ben Affleck & Matt Damon's PROJECT GREENLIGHT series on Bravo. While still in college, Beck & Woods' work caught the eye of MTV Films, which offered the pair a feature film development deal. The duo went on to write and direct an original scripted pilot for MTV and executive producer David Gale (ELECTION), and were later listed as "The Top 100 Writers on the Verge" by Tracking-Board.com.
In 2015, Beck & Woods wrote and directed NIGHTLIGHT, a supernatural thriller released by Lionsgate Entertainment. The film was produced by Herrick Entertainment and Oscar-nominated producer Michael London (SIDEWAYS). Beck & Woods subsequently developed another feature for Lionsgate, written by Mark Heyman (BLACK SWAN) and produced by filmmaker Darren Aronofsky.
Beck & Woods are members of the Directors Guild of America and the Writers Guild of America. They are represented by ICM Partners, Madhouse Entertainment, and Manatt, Phelps & Phillips.
