Middle Fork and Shooting Gallery team

'Anaconda' producer inks 3-year deal with TSG

Verna Harrah’s Middle Fork Productions has joined forces with Gotham-based producer/distributor The Shooting Gallery for a three-year multipicture deal to co-produce and develop specialty and big-budget films for TSG to finance.

It gives the growing Shooting Gallery the chance to step up to bigger budgets and possible event films with Harrah, who produced “Anaconda” and is working on the sequel at Columbia, along with the romantic comedy “Saving Grace” at Universal and “Purgatory Road” at Warner Bros. Harrah also has recently become a producing partner with Samuelson Prods. on “London 1940,” a high-profile film about Winston Churchill during World War II.

Julian Mitchell wrote the script for Brian Gilbert to direct, and Harrah has joined Marc and Peter Samuelson as producers for a project that is using Churchill family documents to show how he mobilized Britain to fight Hitler.

In its deal with TSG, Middle Fork will fund development of projects agreed upon by Harrah and TSG chairman/CEO Larry Meistrich, and Harrah will join TSG’s board of directors.

“The sensibilities of the Middle Fork team, on both personal and professional levels, greatly compliment those of The Shooting Gallery,” said Meistrich. “Our relationship with Verna Harrah and Middle Fork will allow TSG to nurture both large-scale and specialized projects. We look forward to a creative, long-lasting partnership.”

Jake Bloom of Bloom, Hergott, Cook, Diemer & Klein negotiated the deal for Middle Fork.
