Tapestry, Miramax weave first-look deal

Duo to develop, produce pics for both labels

NEW YORK — Tapestry Films and Miramax have made a tacit relationship formal: The Los Angeles-based shingle, which has made such pics as “Serendipity” and “She’s All That” with Miramax, has inked a two-year first-look pact with its frequent partner.

Tapestry partners and co-founders Peter Abrams and Robert Levy will develop and produce pics for both Miramax and Dimension labels. It will develop and produce all genres of films, including family and adult-themed projects.

Outside of “Serendipity” and “She’s All That,” Tapestry produced “On the Line,” with ‘N Sync’s Lance Bass and Joey Fatone, for Miramax.

Abrams and Levy, along with Tapestry chief production execs Jennifer Gibgot and Andrew Panay, will work closely with Jill Messick, Miramax senior veep of production, on Miramax projects; they will collaborate with Robbie Brenner, Dimension senior VP of production, on Dimension pics.

Building on success

“It’s exciting to be joining forces with Peter, Robert and the Tapestry team,” said Bob Osher, co-president of production at Miramax. “The collective experience of Miramax and Tapestry and the past successes of our co-productions will surely make this collaboration a prosperous one.”

Added Abrams and Levy: “We’ve worked happily and successfully with Miramax on three films and are delighted to be one of their select independent production alliances for the near future.”

Tapestry recently produced romantic comedy “The Wedding Planner,” starring Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey, for Columbia.
