FANS UNITE FOR BAD SAMARITAN
LEGION M AND DEAN DEVLIN JOIN FORCES WITH FANS TO SHAPE THE FUTURE OF HOLLYWOOD
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 (opening May 4th starring David Tennant, Robert Sheehan, Carlito Olivero, Kerry Condon and Jacqueline Byers).
With over 25 years in Hollywood, Dean's been involved with some of the biggest hits in the business. Co-creator of Stargate. Writer/Producer of 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 70'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! It takes only a few minutes with Dean and his infectious enthusiasm to 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 fan-owned company built on a revolutionary new business model, Legion M is always eager to partner with those who innovate and take risks. While Dean has written, directed and produced studio films, Bad Samaritan is as independent as gets. He didn't just produce and direct the film--he's also independently distributing it through his company Electric Entertainment.
The ability for creators like Dean to bypass studios and bring their projects directly to fans represents a new frontier in Hollywood--one that Legion M is proud to help pioneer. In fact, it's the ability to bridge the gap between fans and creators that drew Dean to us. In a recent interview with Film School Rejects, Dean talked about what Legion M meant for the future of filmmaking.
The direction that Hollywood is moving is not healthy for the long-term existence of the theatrical experience. I’m hopeful that innovative companies like ours and Legion M will find ways to revitalize the moviegoing experience.
By investing in Bad Samaritan, Legion M has embraced Dean's vision for the the future of Hollywood and given our fan-owners around the world a chance to join forces with one of the most successful creators in Hollywood. To celebrate, we're organizing opening-weekend meetups around the country with special fan exclusives including free limited-edition Bad Samaritan gift bags (while supplies last!).
If this sounds interesting, it's not too late to get involved! Sign up today for a Bad Samaritan opening weekend meetup, and learn how you can join Legion M for free to be a part of the FAN-OWNED REVOLUTION!
WHAT IS LEGION M?
Legion M gives fans a first-of-its kind opportunity to invest in film, TV, and digital content. We're using the JOBS Act to create the world's first FAN-OWNED entertainment company. Our long-term goal is to unite 1 million fans as shareholders of our company. We believe an entertainment company owned by fans could become one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.
In addition to Bad Samaritan, Legion M has also invested in Colossal (Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis), Mandy (Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough), ICONS (Stan Lee, Kevin Smith), and much, much more. Join the fan-owned revolution at www.legionm.com.
