Vertigo Films is a British independent TV and Film production company founded in 2002 by Allan Niblo and James Richardson and joined a few years later by CEO Jane Moore. It has built up one of the most successful feature film businesses in the UK. Producing and releasing over 50 films from critical hits MONSTERS and BRONSON to Oscar Nominated AJAMI, to No.1 UK box office hits STREETDANCE 3D and THE SWEENEY, and its’ TV success has been borne out with three seasons each of BRITANNIA and BULLETPROOF for Sky, MAMMALS for Amazon and A TOWN CALLED MALICE for Sky.
Vertigo has a long history of discovering and supporting new talent, with a number of their films kick-starting the careers of leading names including Tom Hardy (Bronson, Mad Max, Venom), Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla, Star Wars: Rogue One), Vanessa Kirby (Kill Command, Mission Impossible, The Crown), Sofia Boutella (StreetDance 2, Kingsman, Rebel Moon), Danny Dyer (The Football Factory, The Business, Rivals), Tom Shankland (The Children, Les Misérables, SAS Rogue Heroes), Nicholas Winding Refn (Bronson, Drive, Only God Forgives) and Issa Lopez (Britannia, True Detective 3).
As well as being one of the most prolific and experienced producers in the UK, Vertigo has built and sold several successful companies; Vertigo Releasing, Post Republic and Automatik. In partnership with Film4 and Ingenious, Vertigo set up Protagonist Pictures and it is still a stakeholder today.
