Pentecost, Mouse reup

'Pocahontas' producer inks 3-year pact

James Pentecost, who produced Disney’s “Pocahontas,” has reupped and restructured his exclusive deal with the Mouse House for another three years, Disney announced Thursday.

In the new arrangement, Pentecost will provide Disney with a first look on all his projects, including animated features, live-action pics, TV programs, legit productions and books. Pentecost formerly had only an animation deal.

One of his first projects will be a collaboration with producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy on a prequel to the hit live-action/animation pic “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”

He’s also producing, with Mike Karz, the Stephen Schwartz musical “Geppetto” for “The Wonderful World of Disney” on ABC.

Karen Rupert is Pentecost’s director of development.

Before coming to the Mouse in 1992 to produce “Pocahontas,” Pentecost worked on Broadway as a production stage man-ager on such hits as “Crimes of the Heart,” “La Cage Aux Folles,” “Romance, Romance” and “Gypsy” with Tyne Daly.

Pentecost was repped by attorney Melanie Cook in the deal.
