Benderspink Dissolving Production-Management Company After 18 Years

17 May 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

JC Spink and Chris Bender are dissolving their 18-year-old management-production company Benderspink, which has been involved in “The Hangover” trilogy, “We’re the Millers,” “A History of Violence” and “Zombeavers.”

The duo said the split is amicable in a statement issued Tuesday: “We started Benderspink in our late 20s almost 18 years ago. We could not be more proud of what we’ve achieved together and are excited for this next chapter in each of our lives.”

The statement did not elaborate on what they will do next.

Spink focused mostly on management while Bender focused on producing. The company was formed in 1998 after the two had worked as assistants at Zide-Perry Productions, where Bender received a co-producing credit on “American Pie.”

The duo, who met at Bucknell University, had a long-time first-look deal through New Line that launched in 2001. They delivered mid-budget titles such as “Horrible Bosses” and “The Butterfly Effect” franchises, »
