Riva Marker is an award-winning producer and founding partner of Nine Stories Productions with Jake Gyllenhaal. Nine Stories has a first-look deal with Bold Films, the company behind WHIPLASH, DRIVE, and NIGHTCRAWLER, the latter of which Gyllenhaal starred in and produced. Gyllenhaal won an Independent Spirit Award for producing NIGHTCRAWLER and was an Executive Producer on David Ayer’s END OF WATCH. Marker produced Cary Fukunaga’s critically acclaimed child soldier drama BEASTS OF NO NATION and was an Executive Producer on Academy Award nominated THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT. Nine Stories aims to develop and produce provocative, character-driven material at both the studio and independent levels. The company’s first film, David Gordon Green’s STRONGER, is inspired by the true story of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman and based on the New York Times bestseller of the same name. The film premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival and was released to critical acclaim on September 22, 2017, by Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions. Most recently Riva produced WILDLIFE, Paul Dano’s directorial debut in which Gyllenhaal stars opposite Carey Mulligan.
