Production company Bullitt has expanded its roster with the addition of directors Peyton Reed and Loni Peristere.
Reed directed Marvel’s Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly. The action comedy grossed over $519 million globally and has already spawned a sequel, Ant-Man And The Wasp, which Reed will also direct. His other feature directing credits include Bring It On (Universal), starring Kirsten Dunst, Down with Love (20th Century Fox), featuring Ewan McGregor and Renee Zellweger, The Break-Up (Universal) with Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn, and Yes Man (Warner Brothers) starring Jim Carrey, Zooey Deschanel and Bradley Cooper. Reed is known for bringing his wry wit and keen sense of visual invention to projects ranging from TV movies to music videos to comedic television (HBO’s Mr. Show with Bob and David, Comedy Central’s Upright Citizens Brigade, Fox’s New Girl). His collaborations with high-profile talent have resulted in numerous commercial directing credits including Gap (with Sarah Jessica Parker), Target (with Isaac Mizrahi) and Cisco (with Ellen Page). Reed joins Bullitt from Moxie Pictures.
Peristere has helmed numerous campaigns for brands such as PlayStation, Audi, Jeep, ESPN, Budweiser, Adidas and Mini Cooper, which have earned a London International Film Festival Award, a Golden Pencil, a BDA, and several Clios. Peristere directed the series finale for Robert Kirkman’s new series Outcast; he is co-executive producer and director on the Cinemax series Banshee, and a director for the FX series American Horror Story. He is the co-founder of visual effects company Zoic Studios. Peristere was formerly repped by Bandito Brothers for commercials and branded content.
As storytellers, Reed and Peristere align with Bullitt’s work at the intersection of entertainment and advertising, developing experiences for brands, from commercial campaigns to VR and other varied forms of content.
Bullitt director/co-founder Joe Russo said that Reed and Peristere are “known for pushing creative boundaries for the sake of epic entertainment and the enhancement of brands.” Company director/co-founder Anthony Russo chimed in that the two latest directorial additions to Bullitt “are both deeply experienced in short and long-format entertainment, and are conversant in how technology pushes art and vice versa.”
