The Fyzz Facility
Owned and managed by film producers Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones The Fyzz is a prolific British production and finance company that has produced and part-funded over 185 independent feature films, investing a total of $225 million, over the last six years. The company has invested in an aggregate production spend in excess of USD$1.7 billion.
The principals of The Fyzz have long-established careers with Jones having produced THE USUAL SUSPECTS, DIRTY PRETTY THINGS and more recently producing and co-creating (with Danny Boyle, Jesse Armstrong and Sam Bain) the acclaimed Channel 4/Sundance Channel TV series BABYLON. Godfrey wrapped last year on Martin Campbell’s THE FOREIGNER starring Pierce Brosnan and Jackie Chan.
Mark Lane and James Harris were appointed as directors of The Fyzz Facility Pictures, the production focused arm of the company, last year. In their previous company The Tea Shop & Film Company they earned producer credits on over 11 films including TOWER BLOCK starring Jack O’Connell, COCKNEYS VS ZOMBIES with Studiocanal, 47 METERS DOWN starring Mandy Moore and I AM NOT A SERIAL KILLER starring Christopher Lloyd and Max Records.
The Fyzz Facility’s credits include the forthcoming Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE starring Liam Neeson; the hotly-anticipated THE YELLOW BIRDS with Jennifer Aniston, Alden Ehrenreich and Toni Collette; WIND RIVER starring Jeremy Renner, Rob Reiner's SHOCK AND AWE starring Woody Harrelson and Tommy Lee Jones as well as Stephen FIngleton’s BAFTA nominated debut feature THE SURVIVALIST.
The company is in development on a number of television and film projects and is in post-production on FINAL SCORE starring Dave Bautista and Pierce Brosnan as well as Matthew Holness' twisted thriller POSSUM starring Sean Harris.
Upcoming projects include THE STRANGERS 2, set to be directed by Johannes Roberts and starring Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, Martin Henderson and Lewis Pullman which we are currently in production on and THREE SECONDS based on the best-selling novel of the same name, helmed by Andrea di Stefano and starring Rosamund Pike, Joel Kinnaman, Common and Clive Owen which is due to shoot this July.
