“We brought Brad in to help us find those films that will have broader appeal ,” said Bevan; he added that budgets for upcoming films will rise to between $ 10 and $ 20 million.

Bevan and Fellner — who are both European — are looking for Americanmaterial that can been shot in England or Western Europe.

Working Title is owned by Polygram Filmed Entertainment.

Among its films that will be released in 1994 are Peter Medak’s “Romeo Is Bleeding,””Four Weddings And A Funeral,” directed by Mike Newell, and the Coen brothers’ “The Hudsucker Proxy,” starring Tim Robbins, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Paul Newman.
