Producer had been with Disney for more than 20 years
Jerry Bruckheimer may have found his new home.
While insiders at Paramount are saying it’s only discussions, Bruckheimer and the studio are close to finalizing an agreement that would give the prolific producer a first-look deal.
It was recently announced in October that Bruckheimer would be ending his deal with Disney and begin shopping for a new one elsewhere after launching several box office successes at the Mouse House including the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
Bruckheimer has a handful of films in development at Paramount including sequels to “Top Gun” and “Beverly Hills Cop,” so a move there would make sense.
Paramount had no comment on the deal.
Bruckheimer had been with Disney for more than 20 years but after the recent disappointment of costly Western “The Lone Ranger,” the two parties decided to part ways.
