TORONTO — Director George Hickenlooper, whose “The Man of Elysian Fields” makes its world premiere here Sept. 13, has struck a two-pic pact with producers Donald Zuckerman and Andrew Pfeffer.

The two films under the deal are “A Woman of No Importance,” penned by Howard Himmelstein, from the Oscar Wilde play, and “Vultures,” written by Kimberlee Reed.

Zuckerman, via his Zuckerman Entertainment shingle, and Pfeffer, via Pfilmco Entertainment, plan to put one of the two pics into production before the end of the year.

“A Woman” melds two Wilde short stories and his play. “Vultures,” which Zuckerman and Pfeffer will produce with Debra Del Prete and Gigi Pritzker, centers on a young photographer caught up in the dilemma of whether or not to publish a photograph.

Previous to “The Man of Elysian Fields,” Hickenlooper has made three pics with Zuckerman and Pfeffer: “The Big Brass Ring,” “Dogtown” and “The Love Life.” Hickenlooper also helmed the doc “Hearts of Darkness,” about the making of “Apocalypse Now.”

“The Man of Elysian Fields” stars James Coburn, Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies.
