Col inks indies Green, Renzi

Producers to seek edgy, mature pix

Columbia Pictures, on the prowl for more “mature” films, has inked New York-based indie producers Sarah Green and Maggie Renzi to a three-year, first-look deal.

Green and Renzi, who were producers together on John Sayles’ “The Secret of Roan Inish,” “Passion Fish” and “City of Hope,” will remain in New York, seeking out edgy indie-style material to turn into feature films.

Sony prexy and CEO John Calley said he was gratified to see producers on the level of Green and Renzi join Columbia’s ranks.

Mature slant

“They know how to assemble unusually good casts and make quality films for a mature, sophisticated audience,” Calley said.

Green, who has been David Mamet’s producer for several years, is completing production on “The Winslow Boy.” Renzi began her professional career with Sayles on “Return of the Secaucus Seven.” She is producing the Sayles Alaskan wilderness drama “Limbo” and is developing his comedy “Junketeers.”
