After making millions, or rather billions, from blockbuster franchises The Pirates Of The Caribbean and National Treasure amongst others, The Walt Disney Company and powerhouse producer Jerry Bruckheimer have decided not to re-team once their current first look deal ends next year. The two have apparently come to some sort of amicable divorce but you must wonder if the box-office failure of The Lone Ranger (a film I blooming loved by the way) has something to do with their decision.

Check out the official press release giving details and statements on the split.

The Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer have decided not to renew their first-look deal when it expires next year. Disney will continue to focus on its branded properties including Disney, Pixar, Marvel and now Lucasfilm, while Bruckheimer is looking to produce more mature films outside the scope of the Disney brand. Disney and Bruckheimer will continue »
