• Disney and Bruckheimer Will Let Deal Expire in 2014


    BURBANK (CNS) – Walt Disney Co. and producer Jerry Bruckheimer say they won’t renew their first-look deal when it expires in 2014, ending a relationship that generated in 27 movies over more than 20 years.

    Bruckheimer “is looking to produce more mature films outside the scope of the Disney brand,” Burbank-based Disney said in a statement.

    This summer’s Disney-Bruckheimer cooperation, “The Lone Ranger,” largely flopped. Before “Lone Ranger,” Bruckheimer and Disney teamed up on the “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “National Treasure” franchises.

    “The good news is we will continue working together on ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ ‘National Treasure’ and other projects we have developed together at the studio,” Bruckheimer said in a statement.

    Added Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn: “We will continue to work together in the future, and we look forward to seeing more of the films that have made Jerry Bruckheimer a Hollywood legend.”

    The four “Pirates of the Caribbean” films have grossed about $3.73 billion worldwide, the Los Angeles Times reported. But Disney said this month that the fifth film in the franchise would not be released as planned on July 10, 2015.

    People with knowledge of the matter have said the delay was in part due to the project’s incomplete script and the studio’s crowded 2015 slate, according to The Times.
