'Blind Side' producers detail payouts that Michael Oher, Tuohy family received

Aug 25, 2023

The production company that financially backed "The Blind Side" broke its silence Thursday after more than a week of the film’s subjects exchanging salacious accusations.

Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, co-founders of Alcon Entertainment, released a lengthy statement defending the movie’s authenticity and pushing back against Michael Oher’s claims that the Tuohy family has gotten rich at his expense.

Since the film’s 2009 release, Kosove and Johnson say that Alcon Entertainment has paid approximately $767,000 to the talent agency that represents the Tuohys and Oher. Kosove and Johnson described the deal as “consistent with the marketplace at that time for the rights of relatively unknown individuals.”
