STX said the deal would “serve as a growth engine to develop, market and distribute content globally through multiple distribution channels including theatrical releases, international and direct to streaming services as well as video on demand.” STX moved into TV with HBO Max’s Fboy Island last year , having previously been behind movies such as The Gentlemen, My Spy, The Mauritanian, The Contractor and Queenpins. Jahm Najafi, founder & CEO of The Najafi Companies, said: “As investors, we are long-term minded, and we believe in the power of storytelling and fostering a studio that is friendly to storytellers. “We have the utmost respect for this +100-year-old ecosystem, and we look forward to supporting this partnership and the ways modern entertainment studios are evolving in the future.” Simonds added: “We have solidified our international reputation and notable ambitions thus far, and we look forward to continually proving ourselves with each project we push forward.”
