Class 5 Films
Norton also recently created Class 5 Films in partnership with his brother Jim Norton, writer Stuart Blumberg and producer Bill Migliore. Class 5's feature division will produce films through a first look deal with Universal Pictures and the documentary division will produce nature and science films. Class 5's first documentary production is a film for the Outdoor Life Network, The Great Rivers Expedition, about an historic whitewater adventure that took place in China last winter. Class 5 is also collaborating with the Sea Studios Foundation on their multi-million dollar series about earth system sciences for National Geographic, The Living Machine, which Norton will host and narrate.

Norton, Blumberg usher in Class V
Shingle to produce Lethem's 'Brooklyn' adaptation
By Gabriel Snyder
Variety, October 10, 2003
Former Yale roommates Edward Norton and Stuart Blumberg have launched production company Class V and inked a three-year, first-look pact with Universal Pictures.
Offices will be Gotham-based, with Bill Migliore running the daily affairs. Deal with U covers Class V's overhead.
U production prexys Mary Parent and Scott Stuber said in a statement: "Over the years, Edward Norton has demonstrated remarkable taste and talent in his choice of material, and we look forward to working closely with him, Stuart and Bill, in developing interesting and exciting projects we can produce together."
Deal was brokered by Endeavor, which reps both Norton and Blumberg. From the U side, Parent was credited with making the deal happen.
The duo are producing an adaptation of Jonathan Lethem's novel "Motherless Brooklyn" for New Line. Norton is set to star in the detective story.
They produced 2000's "Keeping the Faith" with Hawk Koch. Norton starred in and helmed the Blumberg-scripted laffer.
Class V is likely to look to adapt other books as well as plays.
Scribe Blumberg wrote the script for "The Girl Next Door," which will be
released in 2004 by New Regency and Fox. He is working on a remake of musical
"Bye Bye Birdie" at Columbia as well as developing "Ebony and Ivory" at
Class 5 or Class V?
Variety has it as Class V however, both the Hollywood Reporter and AMC's Edward Norton bio have it as Class 5 Films so I'm going with Class 5 until I find out otherwise.
