Avi Lerner’s Millennium Films has signed a five-picture production deal with producer Steven Haft’s Haft Entertainment.
Nonexclusive pact provides Haft with funds to attach talent and make pics with secured foreign sales and distribution via Millennium’s Nu Image.
Pics will be budgeted in the $15 million-$45 million range. No projects have been identified under the pact.
Deal is part of Millennium’s push into bigger-budget fare.
Haft’s producing credits include “Dead Poets Society,” “Emma” and “Tigerland.”
