About The Ink Factory
The Ink Factory
was founded in 2010 by Stephen and Simon Cornwell as an independent studio with global reach. The company works to tell compelling stories across television, film, games and immersive experiences while developing ideas from inception to release through long-term relationships with authors and creators. The Ink Factory takes bold creative and financial decisions and seeks out opportunities for ambitious and genre-defining work.

A core pillar of the company is the adaptation of the work of author John le Carré for film, television and other media.

Most recently, Film4 and WWE’s Fighting with My Family was produced in association with The Ink Factory. Written and directed by Stephen Merchant and starring Dwayne Johnson, Florence Pugh and Vince Vaughn, the film premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

The Ink Factory’s latest television adaptation of le Carré’s “The Little Drummer Girl” directed by Park Chan-wook aired on the BBC and AMC this past fall. The company is also behind the Emmy® and Golden Globe® award-winning drama series “The Night Manager,” based on a le Carré novel of the same name and co-produced with the BBC and AMC. The company is currently developing a series based on The Spy Who Came in From the Cold produced in association with Paramount TV and, once again, with the BBC and AMC.

The company’s first film, A Most Wanted Man, based on the novel by John le Carré, was released in 2014. Other past projects include Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, directed by Ang Lee and based on the award-winning novel by Ben Fountain; Netflix Original Message from the King, a noir thriller by Stephen Cornwell and Oliver Butcher and directed by Fabrice du Welz which premiered at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival; and Drew Pearce’s directorial debut Hotel Artemis, starring Jodie Foster and Sterling K. Brown.

The Ink Factory also partnered with one of the game industry's top talents, Matt Nava, to found digital studio Giant Squid. Giant Squid’s first game, the twice-BAFTA-nominated ABZÛ, was released in August 2016. Giant Squid’s latest game The Pathless will be released in 2019 and has been hand-picked for Apple’s highly-anticipated game subscription service, Apple Arcade.

The company is headquartered in London and Los Angeles.
