Naomi Watts to headline new film produced by Maven Screen Media

Naomi Watts is set to headline “Infinite Storm,” the highly anticipated film from Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska.

“Infinite Storm” is being produced by Maven Screen Media’s Celine Rattray, Trudie Styler and Jenny Halper with Naomi Watts for JamTart Productions, as well as Peter and Michael Sobiloff.

Calculus invested in Maven Screen Media in August 2020. Specifically, Maven is dedicated to increasing representation of female content creators and female-centred stories. Maven recognises that women are under represented both in front of and behind the camera: only 30% of top grossing films from 2014 to 2017 starred a woman, but female-led films outperformed at the box office (CAA), and of the top-grossing films from 2007 to 2018, only 4% were directed by a woman (USC). Their development slate across film, TV and digital content demonstrates their commitment to having strong female leads, with unique narratives that address social issues and inspire change.
