Bandeira extends D’Works contract

Flynn's prod'n co. continues first-look deal for 2 years

Beau Flynn’s Bandeira Entertainment has secured a two-year extension to their first-look, non-exclusive deal with DreamWorks SKG.

Bandeira, which produces pics budgeted between $7 million and $15 million, began its deal at DreamWorks in 1998.

Bandeira’s relationship with DreamWorks began to bear fruit with 1999’s “The Love Letter,” directed by Peter Chan.

Currently, Bandeira has eight projects in development with the studio, including “Date School,” in which Ben Stiller plays a dating instructor falling for a skeptical pupil played by Cameron Diaz. Scripted by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein (“Never Been Kissed”), “Date School” has a tentative spring start date, with Greg Mottola (“Day Trippers”) directing.

Bandeira has feature deals with several other studios, including Artisan Entertainment, where “Requiem for a Dream” — the second feature by Darren Arnofsky (“Pi”) — recently wrapped, and Fox-based New Regency, where Joel Schumacher will direct Bandeira’s “Tigerland,” based on a screenplay by Ross Klavan and Michael McGruther.
