Urban signs six-pic pact

Disc Drive

Melee Entertainment has signed country music singer Keith Urban to star in the company’s first feature under a six-pic deal with Paramount Home Entertainment (Daily Variety, Nov. 1) for music-based films.

Melee will co-finance the untitled romantic-drama slated to start shooting early next year with an eye toward a release next summer, timed to the release of Urban’s next album and a TV special.

Last year, Melee produced with Screen Gems the music-driven “You Got Served,” which starred R&B group B2K.
