First-look deal extends informal relationship

Pathe U.K. has inked a first-look deal with Brit producer Damian Jones’ DJ Films following their collaboration on Meryl Streep starrer “The Iron Lady.”

Jones’ credits include upcoming period drama “Belle,” sports pic “Fast Girls” (now in post), “The History Boys,” “Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll,” “Welcome to Sarajevo” and “Kidulthood.”

Jones said, “I am thrilled to deepen my relationship with Pathe, having already had great success with them with films ranging from ‘Adulthood’ to ‘The Iron Lady.’ With my upcoming slate, I look forward to continuing that success.”

Pathe U.K. managing director Cameron McCracken said Jones “has a remarkably consistent track record in recognizing smart commercial film ideas.”
