Thompson on Hollywood

Relativity Media and Canadian Alliance Films have renewed their output deal through 2015. Alliance Films president Charles Layton says Relativity "consists of great guys, partners and entrepreneurs.  We look forward to helping them build Relativity in the coming years.”

Each of Relativity's single-picture productions and acquisitions will be handled by Alliance in Canada and Momentum Pictures in the UK. Relativity and Alliance's 2008 three-year deal yielded The Fighter, Season of the Witch, Dear John and Brothers (the remake of Susanne Bier's Danish Brødre). Upcoming are the films Limitless, which stars Bradley Copper, Abbie Cornish and Robert De Niro, Steven Soderbergh's Haywire, and Immortals (starring new Superman Henry Cavill) .
