Ratner co-founded production company RatPac Entertainment in 2012. The following year, Warner Bros. inked a co-financing deal with RatPac-Dune Entertainment, an investment vehicle created by RatPac and now-Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin’s Dune Entertainment.
RatPac also has a first-look deal with Warner Bros. and rents office space on the Burbank studio lot. Ratner has executive producing credits on Warner Bros. movies such as “Jersey Boys” and “Black Mass.”
