.Jordan, the backer of the 2018 Maggie Gyllenhaal drama The Kindergarten Teacher (which won a directing award at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival), allegedly ran the ring with the help of a British madam. His activities spanned 2010 to 2017, according to an indictment filed in the Southern District of New York.

He founded PaperChase Films in 2013. His films include 2019’s The Kid with Ethan Hawke.

The 49-year-old Jordan allegedly used his movie production company and a California-based event-planning firm to launder the money from the prostitution activities, the court papers allege.

“As alleged, for years, Dillon Jordan operated an extensive and far-reaching prostitution business, using a purported event planning company and a movie production company to conceal the proceeds he made from exploiting women,” Manhattan US Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a statement. “Now the party is over and the film is a wrap.”

Jordan was expected to appear before a judge today in the Central District of California. So far, no comments from his defense has been issued.
