Norman Jewison has signed an exclusive, multipicture deal with Arnon Milchan’s Warner Bros.-based New Regency Prods.
Under terms of the deal, Jewison is committed to making three pictures over the next two years. New Regency, which has an option for a third year, will cover the overhead of Jewison’s Yorktown Prods, company. In the first year, Jewison is committed to directing one yet-to-be-determined project for New Regency.
Jewison moved to New Regency after his deal with Warner Bros, expired in December. The last film Jewison directed was “Only You” at TriStar.
