Jerry Bruckheimer to End Deal With Disney

From the N.Y Times : "The Walt Disney Company and Jerry Bruckheimer announced on Thursday that they would end a movie deal under which Mr. Bruckheimer has produced hits like the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series, and a notable flop in “The Lone Ranger.”
Mr. Bruckheimer, one of Hollywood’s most respected senior producers, has been making movies with Disney since the early 1990s, when he was executive producer of “The Ref.”
In a statement, Disney and Mr. Bruckheimer said they would end their existing deal when it expires next year. The statement said Mr. Bruckheimer intends to produce “more mature films” than those for which he has been known at Disney, while the studio plans to focus on pictures from its Pixar, Marvel, LucasFilm and Walt Disney units".
BUT, as none of them are fools, Jerry Bruckheimer said in the announcement that he planned to continue working with Disney on future “Pirates of the Caribbean” and “National Treasure” movies. So, end of the alert, POTC movies are still coming, and all what we ask them is to make good ones!
