Wilson Inks Fox Pact

Mara Wilson, the 7-year-old star of 20th Century Fox’s remake of “Miracle on 34th Street,” has inked a nearly $1.5 million, non-exclusive deal with the studio to star in at least two of its movies over the next two years.

Wilson’s reps began negotiating her deal with the studio’s family films division nearly two months before the Nov. 18 release of “Miracle.” The deal was closed on the heels of the film’s disappointing B.O. showing.

Family films prexy Chris Meledandri said no projects have yet been earmarked for Wilson.

The family films division will develop material for Wilson, and has begun to canvass the marketplace for books and stories as vehicles for her.
