Richard Gladstein’s FilmColony, which has had a first-look producing deal with Miramax since 1995, will break from the studio when Gladstein’s latest two-year deal expires in August.
“It’s been a great relationship with Miramax, and one that continues,” said Gladstein, who is producing the Marc Forester-helmed “Neverland” for Miramax.
“I will continue to make the other projects that I have been developing with Miramax and will find new films to do with them. It’s just the right time for me to move on.”
The producer has been in post-production on “Levity,” the Ed Solomon-helmed pic that stars Billy Bob Thornton, Morgan Freeman, Holly Hunter and Kirstin Dunst
, due for release from Sony. Also in post-production is the Danny DeVito-helmed “Duplex,” which Gladstein is exec producing and Miramax will release.
Gladstein recently produced Universal’s “The Bourne Identity.” His Miramax credits include “The Cider House Rules,” which was nominated for a best picture Academy Award, “She’s All That,” “Hurlyburly” and “54.”
While head of production at Miramax from 1993-95, he supervised production on such pics as “Pulp Fiction” and “Flirting With Disaster.”
