‘Gravity’ Financier RatPac Signs First-Look Deal at Warner Bros.

29 April 2014 12:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Seven months after announcing a $300 million co-financing deal, Warner Bros. has signed a first-look deal with Brett Ratner and James Packer’s RatPac Entertainment.

The pact gives Warner Bros. 32 first-look deals, the most of any studio. Those include deals with Clint Eastwood, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr. and Zack Snyder.

The studio plans to house RatPac’s offices in the same building once occupied by Frank Sinatra — head of the iconic Rat Pack consisting of Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford.

RatPac has already set up Harlan Coben’s mystery novel “Missing You” at the studio, acquiring the movie rights a day before Dutton published it last month.

RatPac Entertainment is part of the RatPac-Dune Entertainment film finance vehicle formed with Steven Mnuchin, which announced a multi-year agreement in September to be used by Warner Bros. and RatPac-Dune to co-finance as many as 75 upcoming titles. »

Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams was Oscar-nominated for her critically-acclaimed performance as Monroe in Simon Curtis's My Week with Marilyn (2011). The movie centered on Monroe's fraught relationship with her then co-star Laurence Olivier, played by Kenneth Branagh, during the production of The Prince and the Showgirl in Britain.

Reflecting upon the role, Williams said: "Gosh, sometimes I can't even believe I did it because the challenges were just...

Joseph T. Naar, TV, Film Producer and Wma Agent, Dies at 88

22 January 2014 4:45 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Joseph T. Naar, a former William Morris agent who went to produce blaxploitation vampire pics “Blacula” and “Scream Blacula Scream,” as well as TV series “Starsky and Hutch,” died January 17. He was 88.

At Wma, after Naar was fast-tracked through the agency’s training program in the early 1950s, his clients came to include Peter Lawford, Steve McQueen, Ali MacGraw, Raquel Welch and Marilyn Monroe. (Monroe became a close friend and confidant.)
