The Onion & Lionsgate Plan Film Slate

Satirical media brand The Onion has partnered with Lionsgate for a three-film development deal that runs through 2018.

No details have been revealed about what will result from the project, be it either digitally distributed titles or theatrically released features.

As part of the deal, Onion Studios has also partnered with production house Serious Business (“@Midnight”) to develop the film titles.

The Onion has increasingly focused its digital growth efforts on brand-sponsored articles and building out a video studio with reoccurring series.
