    Annapurna Pictures, the production company and studio behind Oscar-nominated films Zero Dark Thirty (2012), Her (2013), American Hustle (2013), and Phantom Thread (2017), has signed a worldwide publishing agreement with Warner/Chappell Music (WCM), the music publishing arm of Warner Music Group.

     

    WCM will represent and administer the rights to the indie film and TV company’s music publishing properties, including its musical compositions and scores. In partnership, the companies will work together to identify new opportunities for Annapurna’s growing portfolio of music in film, TV, advertising, games, and other media, as well as strategic collaborations with Warner/Chappell’s songwriters and catalogs.

     

    Ron Broitman, Executive Vice President, Head of Synchronization for Warner/Chappell said: “We are excited to partner and produce amazing musical moments with the talented Annapurna team who similarly value creative ingenuity and share our ethos of putting our creative partners first.”

     

    Chris Corabi, President of Business and Legal Affairs of Annapurna Pictures said: “We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Warner/Chappell. Their longstanding relationships with some of the industry’s most accomplished and legendary songwriters and artists is a testament to their visionary creative services. We look forward to working together and creating a valuable and productive relationship.”

     

    Annapurna, founded by Megan Ellison in 2011, focuses on creating sophisticated, high-quality content that is critically and commercially conscious while still appealing to a diverse audience. By upholding the company’s vision to put filmmakers and artists first and preserve their authentic creative voices no matter the genre or medium, the company has garnered a total of 38 Academy Award nominations, including four Best Picture nods for American Hustle, Her, Zero Dark Thirty, and Phantom Thread. Annapurna’s upcoming releases include Jacques Audiard’s The Sisters Brothers, Barry Jenkins’ film adaptation of James Baldwin’s If Beale Street Could Talk, and Adam McKay’s Untitled Dick Cheney Project.
