The Walt Disney Co. has announced that it would not renew its first-look deal with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, bringing an end to a longtime partnership between the Hollywood icons.
The company said it will continue to focus on its branded properties from Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Lucasfilm.
“Jerry is one of the most respected and prolific producers working in the motion picture industry, and we have had an incredibly successful collaboration over the past two decades and he is a friend to many of us here at Disney,” said Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn in a statement. “We will continue to work together in the future, and we look forward to seeing more of the films that have made Jerry Bruckheimer a Hollywood legend.”
