Deal reunites 'Charlotte's Web' team

Producer Jordan Kerner has signed a multi-year, first-look deal with Walden Media.

Walden, which teamed with Kerner on “Charlotte’s Web,” will have an exclusive first look at all feature projects Kerner develops through his Kerner Entertainment shingle.

Announcement comes in conjunction with Kerner being appointed dean of the School of Filmmaking at North Carolina School of the Arts, where he’ll oversee 30 faculty members, 15 staff members and 260 undergraduate and graduate students. He plans to divide his time between Los Angeles and Winston-Salem.

Kerner’s produced such family films as “Snow Dogs,” “George of the Jungle,” “Inspector Gadget,” “The Three Musketeers” and the “Mighty Ducks” trilogy. He also teamed with Jon Avnet to produce “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “When a Man Loves a Woman,” “Up Close and Personal” and “Red Corner.”

Walden CEO Cary Granat said, “The films he’s produced fit perfectly into Walden’s mission of creating quality family entertainment that inspires and engages.”
