Paramount inks first-look with Ian Bryce

'Transformers' producer already at work on Par pics

Paramount Pictures has signed “Transformers” producer Ian Bryce to a first-look deal.

Bryce currently has Michael Bay’s “Pain and Gain” in production and just wrapped production on “Word War Z,” starring Brad Pitt. Both pics are Par titles.

“Ian is among the very best producers working in film, and this first-look deal serves as the ideal way to continue our long-standing and successful partnership with him,” said Paramount production prexy Marc Evans.

Rebecca Rajkowski has also been tapped as Bryce’s director of development.

Bryce has been a prolific producer with credits including “Saving Private Ryan,” “Spider-Man,” “Almost Famous” and “Hancock” (as an executive producer). He was one of four producers on each installment of Paramount’s “Transformers” franchise, along with Tom DeSanto, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Don Murphy.

The Gersh-repped Bryce currently has “Amazing Girl,” with Zoe Saldana to star, in development at Paramount.
