Aviron Pictures is an American film production and distribution company founded by William Sadleir and David Dinerstein, a founder of Paramount Classics and formerly of Lakeshore Entertainment and LD Entertainment, in 2017.


In May 2017, it was announced David Dinerstein had launched a film production and distribution company that would release up to eight wide release films, per year, starting off to distribute Kidnap, Drunk Parents, and The Strangers: Prey at Night.[2] In February 2018, it was announced the company had acquired Serenity, and A Private War.[3]

In 2019, a lawsuit was filed by investor BlackRock against Aviron and its founder William Sadlier, citing fraud and financial impropriety in the company structure.[4] Sadlier subsequently exited from his role as the operating manager of Aviron Pictures, a subsidiary of Aviron Group, in January 2020 .[5]

On May 22, 2020, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Berman, announced multiple fraud charges against William Sadleir. He was charged with wire fraud and aggravated identity theft to convince BlackRock to invest $75 million in his Aviron Group,[6] he then allegedly siphoned off more than $20 million from his production company and diverted more than $14 million of it into his mansion. Sadlier also allegedly redirected nearly $1 million of the Coronavirus Paycheck Protection Program loans he applied, meant to keep Aviron staff on payroll, for his personal debts.[7]
