Leone Film Group was founded in 1989 by Sergio Leone and is currently owned by Andrea and Raffaella Leone, sons of the Film Director.
In 2001 the company entered the theatrical distribution business releasing the movie “Traffic”. In the following years the company expanded its focus to all distribution channels including Free-TV, Pay TV and Home Video.
In 2009 Leone Film Group entered into the movie production business with the movie “Generazione Mille Euro”
Through the years the company always expanded its distribution line-up and catalogue with big-budget theatrical titles which brought to the signing of the fist output deal with DreamWorks (Amblin/Storyteller) in December 2012.
In 2013 LFG signed an output deal with Summit a Lionsgate establishing a strong partnership that will last until June 2019.
On December 2013 the Company went public on the Italian AIM and the following year the Group strengthened its position in the movie production business with the acquisition of Lotus Production.
2015 saw the Group leveraging it’s know how and capabilities winning the mandate for the international executive production of the Lionsgate movie “John Wick 2” (which LFG will also distribute in the Italian market), LFG is since then working on the set up and execution of many other international executive productions.
In 2016 the group produced its first TV Series titled “Immaturi” officially entering this highly growing and profitable market. At the same time, the company started developing other internationally oriented TV series (i.e. Colt and Beati Paoli) which will help the company growth in this segment as well.
The Group manages today a library of about 500 titles among which it’s worth to mention the renowned library of all Sergio Leone’ pictures for Italian and, in many cases, international markets together with many other international blockbusters. The library is constantly growing thanks to the output deals (DreamWorks and Lionsgate) and to the strong and growing relationships with all US independent producers.
