Does the ‘B’ stand for Brad? It may as well: Plan B is the entertainment company co-founded by Brad Pitt back in 2001. They’ve been going strong since!
No less than three of their films have won Oscars for Best Picture, and they boast a roster of acclaimed and in-demand directors like Terrence Malick and Barry Jenkins. Indeed, as this video will prove, Plan B may not be as recognizable to movie fans as A24, but with two more sure-fire Oscar contenders set to release with Jenkins’ If Beale Street Could Talk and Felix Van Groeningen’s Beautiful Boy, which features the one-two punch of Steve Carell and Timothée Chalamet, the company is proving to be just as formidable a force in contemporary movie culture.
