Overture Films Signs Agreement with WGA


Overture Films has signed an interim agreement with the WGA to allow striking writers to work for the company, says The Hollywood Reporter. The deal includes similar provisions to those featured in other agreements so far.

Overture launched its inaugural slate this month with the release of Callie Khouri’s Mad Money and will release several films in the coming months, including The Visitor and Sleepwalking.

It also expects to enter production on a number of projects soon as it builds up its slate, and the deal allows writers to work unfettered for the Liberty Media studio.
