Killer Films Gets A Killer Investment

christinevachon.jpgWho says money can’t buy happiness? In the indie world anyway.

Killer Films, the upstart indie producer of such low-budget films as “Boys Don’t Cry” and “Far From Heaven,” has sold off half of itself to New York-based venture capital fund GC Corp, Variety says.

With this influx of cash, partners Christine Vachon and Pam Koffler, who are mainstays at events like the Gotham Awards and the Independent Spirit Awards, will go from making $3 million to $5 million indie projects to $40 million to $50 million films.

Killer had been partnered with “ER” creator John Wells, who will stay on as an executive producer for Killer releases.
