Copperheart Entertainment is a Toronto-based film and television production company established by producer Steven Hoban. The company has produced numerous successful feature films; the Academy Award-winning animated short, RYAN; the world’s first Imax 3D animated movie CYBERWORLD; and, after several months of production in the UK and the US, is currently in post-production on the Amazon series adaptation of William Gibson’s science fiction epic, THE PERIPHERAL, in partnership with Warner Bros. and Kilter Films.
Copperheart produces entertainment for a global audience based on both original concepts and well-established IP. Its most recently released feature films are IN THE TALL GRASS (based on a Stephen King and Joe Hill novella), which stars Patrick Wilson (AQUAMAN, THE CONJURING), and was one of Netflix’s most watched movies worldwide in fall 2019; and low-fi science fiction thriller, COME TRUE, which has won numerous international awards and consistently earned spots on top 10 lists of 2021 from critics around the world. In 2021, Copperheart co-produced the film CODE 8: PART II, a sequel to the hit sci-fi feature, directed by Jeff Chan, starring Stephen Amell and Robbie Amell.
Previous films include A CHRISTMAS HORROR STORY starring William Shatner, WOLVES starring Jason Momoa, HAUNTER starring Abigail Breslin, SPLICE starring Adrien Brody and Sarah Polley, the Dimension Films remake of 70s horror classic BLACK CHRISTMAS, and the cult hit GINGER SNAPS trilogy.
