Background

Atlas Entertainment is the production company of Charles Roven. It was originally formed in 1995 from the merger of Roven and Bob Cavallo's previous company and Steel Pictures, owned by Roven's wife Dawn Steel. In 1999, after Cavallo left the company to join Walt Disney Studios and Steel died, Atlas was merged with Gold/Miller Management to create Mosaic Media Group. In 2008, Roven split off his ties from Mosaic, and relaunched Atlas Entertainment with a first-look deal at Sony Pictures.
