Constantin Film is teaming up with Mark Ordesky and Jane Fleming of Court Five Productions. Constantin and Court Five just signed a first-look deal with plans to develop and produce TV and feature projects together.

Court Five was founded by former New Line Cinema executives Fleming and Ordesky, who were responsible for more than 60 films while at New Line and Fine Line Features. Ordesky was executive producer on The Lord of the Rings trilogy, spending five years supervising all elements of development, production and post in New Zealand with filmmaker Peter Jackson. As Court Five, Fleming and Ordesky have produced three feature films, as well as the reality/scripted television series The Quest. Constantin Film’s credits include the Resident Evil franchise as well as the TV series Shadowhunters.

Constantin’s Robert Kulzer, who is a writer-producer, noted that “Mark’s impeccable taste from Shine to The Lord of the Rings and Jane’s creative and business acumen make them a perfect new ally for Constantin Film to create branded entertainment in film and television.”

Court Five is developing new series with Sony TV, IM Global TV and Hyde Park Entertainment. New Court Five feature films are in development with Columbia Pictures, Universal Pictures and Netflix.
