HistoryEdit

On August 28, 2014, the firm was taken over by acquired Ontario-based eOne Entertainment; the deal is on an existing relationship between the two companies. The firm's partners Rob Bromley, John Richie and Gillian Lowrey will all join eOne as part of the deal. Bromley will oversee the business side of Force Four’s slate, while Richie will specialize in broadcaster liaisons and creative management and Lowrey will be in charge of finance and business affairs.[2]
