The deal will bring Peyton’s television and digital projects to eOne, to serve as the studio and control worldwide rights.

“I’m thrilled to join forces with the team at eOne, who share my passion in developing elevated action projects and world creation for a global audience,” said Peyton.

Multi-hyphenate Peyton is the writer, director and producer who helmed the blockbuster action film San Andreas, starring Dwayne Johnson, which was the highest grossing original concept film of its year earning more than $470 Million worldwide. Longtime partners Peyton and Fierson have several projects coming up which they will be collaborating on including Rampage based on the iconic video game starring Dwayne Johnson, directed by Peyton and executive-produced by Fierson.
