Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist Industries Bought by Major Production Company

Legendary Pictures, the production company behind this current Batman trilogy, The Hangover movies, Inception, and like a zillion other films has purchased Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist Industries. Nerdist, over the last few years, has grown into a multi-faceted, multi-media nerd empire, including a podcast network, a website, a YouTube channel, an e-newsletter, and a live venue. The goal of the acquisition is to help Nerdist further broaden its brand, especially into TV and movies. Hardwick will maintain his position inside Nerdist, as well assume the position of co-president of Legendry’s digital business, which seems like a really fancy job. All in all, it’s a good day for Mr. Hardwick. He must be really enjoying his burrito, right now.
