Scott Stuber sticking with Universal

Studio extends first-look deal to 2013

Scott Stuber is staying put at Universal Pictures through 2013.

U has extended its first-look deal with Stuber Prods., the shingle formed by the studio’s former vice chair of worldwide production. Shingle is getting ready to unspool the laffer “Role Models” this weekend, starring Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott.

Stuber Prods., which recently brought former Paramount exec Pam Abdy on board, has a number of other high-profile pics on U’s upcoming slate, including a redo of “The Wolfman,” starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins; the sci-fi thriller “Repossession Mambo”; “Traveling,” with Aaron Eckhart, Jennifer Aniston and Martin Sheen; and comedy “Couples Retreat,” with Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau.

Studio chairman Marc Shmuger called Stuber a “longtime friend of Universal, and the extension of our partnership is a true sign of our commitment to continue making great films together.”

U inked a five-year pact with Stuber/Parent Prods., the shingle formed by Stuber and vice chairman of production Mary Parent when the duo ankled the studio in 2005.

Their first pic, the laffer “You, Me and Dupree,” bowed in 2006, with “The Kingdom,” “Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins” and “The Break-Up” following.

Parent is now chairman of MGM.
