Valdes Ankles Eastwood For Rysher

David Valdes, who has been associated with Clint Eastwood for the past 15 years, has left Warner Bros.-based Malpaso Prods. and signed with Rysher Entertainment in a two-picture, non-exclusive production deal.

Under his Summer Magic Prods. banner, Valdes has already gotten the go-ahead for his first project, a dramatic comedy called “A Night in Old Mexico” that he will produce with “Legends of the Fall” writer and producer Bill Witliff.

Written by Witliff about 20 years ago, the script was a project that Robert Duvall initially brought to Valdes. “A Night in Old Mexico” is a contemporary story about an older, cantankerous cowboy who is determined to teach his 20-year-old grandson how to live life to its fullest in a small border town in Mexico. At the same time, they find themselves vying for the same woman’s attention.
