The Weinstein Co. has renewed its exclusive first-look deal with Mirage Prods., the production company run by Sydney Pollack and Anthony Minghella. The first new project under the pact, which has been extended for three years, will be an English-language remake of The Lives of Others, the German film by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck that won the Oscar for best foreign-language film Sunday.
Mirage has had a long-standing relationship with Weinstein Co. co-heads Bob and Harvey Weinstein. Most recently, the Weinstein Co., Mirage and Miramax Films produced Minghella's Breaking and Entering, a drama in release starring Jude Law, Juliette Binoche and Robin Wright Penn.
Other Mirage projects included in the renewed deal are I Don't Know How She Does It, a comedy based on Allison Pearson's best-selling novel, which will reunite The Devil Wears Prada screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna and director David Frankel; The Amulet of Samarkand, based on the first novel in Jonathan Stroud's Bartimaeus Trilogy, which screenwriter Hossein Amini is adapting; The Ninth Life of Louis Drax, based on a novel by Liz Jensen, which Minghella will write and direct; The Reader, a love story based on the Bernard Schlink novel; and a potential TV series.
