Shortly after Plan B signed a three year deal, acclaimed “Moonlight” director Barry Jenkins and his Pastel production company have signed a two year film production deal with Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures.
This includes a feature project to be directed by Jenkins which is already in development at Pastel. It also includes future films from PASTEL partners Jenkins, Adele Romanski, Sara Murphy, and Mark Ceryak.
Jenkins is writing the script which will serve as the first project under the deal, details of which are being kept under wraps. The company will also focus their development initiatives on supporting and producing projects from exceptional and emerging filmmakers.
