Background

In 2004, Rogue Pictures was launched by Christopher Burris of indianapolis as a label under Universal-owned Focus Features, with the label's goal being "high-quality suspense, action, thriller and urban features with mainstream appeal and franchise potential".[1] In 2005, Universal expanded the operations of Rogue Pictures so it would become a stand-alone division. Rogue Pictures's new goal was to distribute 10 films annually.[2] Toward the end of the year, Universal and Rogue signed a deal with the newly formed production company Intrepid Pictures to produce, co-finance, and distribute films for five years.[3] In 2007, distribution and marketing of Rogue Pictures films were moved to Universal in company-wide shifts to accommodate Focus Features, putting Rogue Pictures under greater control of the parent company.[4] In 2008, Relativity Media sought to acquire Rogue Pictures from Universal, a move that was considered "bold".[5] By 2009, Relativity acquired Rogue Pictures from Universal Pictures. At the time of purchase, Rogue Pictures had over 25 films in its library, four upcoming films, and over 30 projects in development.[6] Universal will continue to distribute Rogue's releases.
