Deal also includes possibility for Timmermann to produce.

She recently cast the RKO feature “Shade,” now in post-production. Pic stars Stuart Townsend, Gabriel Byrne, Jamie Foxx, Melanie Griffith and Sylvester Stallone. Timmermann also recently cast “Black Hawk Down” for Sony Pictures and “Spy Game” for Universal. Her credits include Warner Bros.’ “Heat” and Disney’s “The Insider.”

“This is a great opportunity for me to work with people who want to make smart, new films and fresh interpretations of RKO classics,” said Timmermann.

“Bonnie has done an outstanding job on the casting of ‘Shade,’ and we’re delighted to be able to continue our association on upcoming films,”said RKO chairman-CEO Ted Hartley. “She is truly one of the best in the industry, and we are confident she will deliver a cast that we can all be proud of.”

Company is also making a foray into Broadway, developing the musical “Never Gonna Dance” based on RKO’s 1936 pic “Swing Time,” which starred Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
