'Twilight' Producers Ink Multiyear Deal at Fox (Exclusive)
Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen are bringing their Temple Hill banner to Century City, where the Twilight Saga producers have inked a first-look deal at 20th Century Fox.
According to sources, part of the multiyear pact may involve one of the Temple Hill partners coming aboard the studio's latest Die Hard installment, A Good Day to Die Hard, which is also being produced by Alex Young. The studio would not confirm Temple Hill's involvement in that project. The fifth chapter in the franchise, which finds protagonist John McClane (Bruce Willis) battling the Russian mafia, is currently shooting in Europe.
Godfrey's relationship with the studio dates back nearly a decade. He produced the Will Smith starrer I, Robot for Fox in 2004, followed by a string of pics including AVP: Alien vs. Predator and Eragon.
In addition to producing the four Twilight films, Temple Hill has a number of pics in development, including the McG directing vehicle Puzzle Palace for Summit and New Line's The Nutcracker, with Adam Shankman attached to direct. The 6-year-old company, whose credits also include Dear John and the upcoming Safe Haven, recently set up the John Green novel The Fault in Our Stars at Fox 2000.
Temple Hill previously made its home at New Line.
