It is the end of era for Walt Disney Studios. Variety has broken the story that Walt Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer will not renew their partnership. Why? I’m sure a lack luster Lone Ranger film had nothing to do with this. No, it probably has to do with Disney acquiring Lucasfilm.
“The Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer have decided not to renew their first-look deal when it expires next year, ending a relationship that’s been one of Hollywood’s more successful partnerships since the 1990s”.
Bruckheimer has come out and stated that he is looking forward to “more mature” features. This does not mean Bruckheimer will not be involved with the fifth installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean” and a third “National Treasure”, he will.
