U reups deal with Parker’s Dirty Hands

Relationship to continue for another two years

Universal Pictures has re-inked with writer-producer-helmer Alan Parker’s Dirty Hands shingle for another two-year, first-look deal.

U acquired the deal through its acquisition of Polygram Filmed Entertainment last year, resulting in the studio’s participation in Parker’s most recent pic “Angela’s Ashes,” a Par co-production.

Parker, whose company is based in London, will work closely with Graeme Mason, president of worldwide acquisitions for Universal.

“Alan Parker is one of the industry’s most respected and distinguished filmmakers,” said Universal Pictures chairman Stacey Snider in a statement; “we are proud to continue our association with him.”
