Jeremy Chilnick, co-founder of the company, Warrior Poets, and partner Matthew Galkin, issued a statement saying, “On behalf of Warrior Poets, we as partners have always supported our company and its endeavors. As of today, Morgan Spurlock will be stepping down effective immediately. We will continue to lead the company as equal partners, producing, distributing & creating from our independent production company.”

The company’s Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!, directed by Spurlock, debuted in September at the Toronto International Film Festival.
