Lantern Entertainment Partners With Gary Barber to Launch Spyglass Media Group

Lantern Entertainment co-presidents Andy Mitchell and Milos Brajovic announced on Wednesday that they’ve joined up with Gary Barber’s Spyglass to launch Spyglass Media Group.

The partnership, which includes Italy’s largest indie distributor Eagle Pictures and Cineworld Group — one of the world’s largest cinema chains — as strategic investors, creates an independent premium content company that comes with a majority investment from Lantern.

Headquartered in Century City, the company will be led by Barber, who will serve as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer and oversee all operations.

“I am excited to partner with Andy and Milos and am grateful for the support of Eagle and Cineworld, who have shown unwavering commitment as we build this preeminent content company,” Barber said in a statement. “There could not be a better time to produce compelling and crowd-pleasing content for worldwide distribution across multiple platforms.”
