The helmer of such pictures as The Ring, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Rango has announced a deal with Microsoft, where his Blind Wink transmedia company will produce original interactive content for Microsoft platforms, including the Xbox 360, Windows Phone and Windows-based PCs.

The deal includes, but is not limited to, video games, the first of which will be released in late 2012. Microsoft says the title, which Wink is developing internally, will be made specifically for Kinect.

“Audiences consume content very differently today,” said Verbinski.  “As an idea house, we at Blind Wink are looking forward to our partnership with Microsoft.  Their various platforms give us access to new methods of distribution, allowing us to extend into emerging markets and connect more directly with the audience.”
