Twentieth Century Fox has re-signed Paul Schiff to a three-year exclusive first-look indie film deal.
In turn, Schiff has hired JoannaMilter as his new veepee of development.
Schiff, who is currently on location in Toronto on the set of “P.C.U.,” first signed with the studio in 1990 under Joe Roth’s regime.
He currently has a number of film projects on tap including remakes of the 1947 “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” and the 1953 suspenser “Niagara,” which he is developing with screenwriter Amy Holden Jones.
He’s also readying “Ghost in the Machine,” which he will co-produce with Barry Sabath for this fall. That film, directed by Rachel Talalay, is a high-tech thriller about a woman hunted by a killer inhabiting a computer system.
Milter has been the director of development for director Joe Dante’s Renfield Prods. While there, she was involved in such projects as John Mattson’s comedy/fantasy “Me,” a sci-fi thriller titled “The Brink” and “Einstein’s Room,” a sci-fi comedy.
Before that, she was a story editor at Laurence Mark Prod.
