Motion Picture Corporation of America (MPCA) was co-founded by Brad Krevoy in 1986 to focus on producing, acquiring, and distributing commercial motion picture and television productions. Since its inception, MPCA has produced, acquired, and distributed over 100 movies, including more than 20 major studio theatrical releases. MPCA is best known for its ability to produce commercial feature comedies, including Dumb and Dumber, the Farrelly Brothers’ first feature film starring Jim Carrey, which generated a gross worldwide box office of $250 million; Kingpin starring Woody Harrelson, Randy Quaid, and Bill Murray; Beverly Hills Ninja starring Chris Farley; and Disney’s Jungle 2 Jungle starring Tim Allen.
MPCA recently produced the critically acclaimed drama Taking Chance starring Kevin Bacon for HBO Films, which premiered on HBO to the highest ratings of any original film in the past five years and was nominated for 10 Emmys (winning one), PGA, WGA, DGA, ASC, ACE, and SAG awards, and two Golden Globes (Best Film and winning for Best Actor, Kevin Bacon).
