D Films, Foundation Pictures ink deal

Multi-year first-look development deal

TORONTO -- Canadian indie distributor D Films has signed a multi-picture, first-look development deal with Vancouver-based Foundation Pictures.

The multi-year deal will cover development on a slate of projects from Foundation Pictures producers Rob Merilees and Dave Valleau ("The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus").

Foundation Pictures grew out of the former Infinity Features team in Vancouver, which was led by the late producer Bill Vince ("Capote").

The deal was negotiated by Jim Sherry for D Films in Toronto and by Rob Merilees for Foundation Features.
