Universal Pictures has signed a two-year, first-look deal with Fake Empire, the company run by “Fun Size” producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Universal will get first dibs on all projects that Fake Empire develops for the big screen. The studio and Fake Empire already worked together on the 2014 film “Endless Love,” a movie about young love, and are collaborating on “Monster High,” based on the Mattel franchise. Schwartz and Savage have had tremendous success in television, producing ‘The O.C.,” “Gossip Girl” and “Chuck.” Those TV shows target the same young audience Universal would like to attract on the feature side. »
