Steph Curry is making moves off the court.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the following news on Monday afternoon:
"After intense courting across the industry, Sony Pictures Entertainment on Monday will announce that it has closed a wide-ranging, multi-year development deal with Curry’s newly formed production company Unanimous Media. The shingle is named for the Golden State Warrior point guard’s distinction in 2016 of becoming the first NBA player to sweep the Most Valuable Player award’s 131 votes.
The first-look film and TV deal also will extend to opportunities in partnerships, electronics, gaming and virtual reality. Curry’s production headquarters will be located on the Sony Pictures studio lot in Culver City.
Curry issued the following statement to the Reporter:
“I’ve been blessed to have this platform and I want to use it to affect the world positively. Partnering with Sony to share inspiring content with a global audience was a foregone conclusion."
The financial details of the deal with Sony are unknown at this point.
In 2017, Curry made about $35 million in endorsements, according to Forbes.
And last summer, he signed a 5-year extension with the Warriors that will pay him just over $201 million.
