Keaton, who has her own production company with Disney and Touchstone, made her feature film helming debut with 1995’s “Unstrung Heroes”; she has several projects in development.

As an actress, she most recently starred in “Marvin’s Room,” for which she received an Oscar nom, B.O. hit “The First Wives Club” and “Father of the Bride 2.”

Her deal was brokered by a William Morris Agency team lead by John Burnham and Jeff Field.
