New startup offers movie investing to wealthy
March 27, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

NEW YORK — A new startup is offering wealthy investors a chance to finance movies starring Tom Hanks, Kate Winslet and Casey Affleck.

The San Francisco-based Junction launched Wednesday. It’s a twist on the crowdfunding that has helped movies like “Veronica Mars” get made. It’s open only to those who make $200,000 a year or have a net worth of more than $1 million.

Junction investors share in potential profits, like normal film financiers. Contributors to projects on crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter receive rewards, like a copy of the script or a signed movie poster.

Junction films are already fully funded, but open to adding more investors.

Among the first projects are the John Hillcoat-directed “Triple Nine,” with Affleck and Winslet, and the Dave Eggers adaptation “A Hologram for the King,” starring Hanks.
