EXCLUSIVE: Longtime Double Feature Films partners Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher are amicably splitting up. They formed their shingle in 2003 after splitting with Danny DeVito and Jersey Films, and they have spent the last 22 years together. Between those two companies, they are the kind of understated producers where you look at their resume and go, wow, they made a lot of good movies. That encompasses everything from Get Shorty to Pulp Fiction, Reality Bites, Garden State, Gattaca, Out Of Sight, Man On The Moon, World Trade Center, Contagion, Erin Brockovich and Django Unchained. Shamberg and Sher continue as partners in their television company which has a first-look deal at AMC. They decided they want to pursue film projects individually, but they will remain partners on they Double Feature projects they have percolating – a list that includes Zach Braff’s crowd-funded indie Wish I Was Here and the Scott Frank-directed adaptation of the Lawrence Block mystery novel A Walk Among The Tombstones, which will star Liam Neeson.
