Virgin Options Sequel To “After Earth”

Virgin Group’s ‘Virgin Produced’ label is teaming up with Overbrook Entertainment on a non-exclusive pact that will support the release of the upcoming Will Smith sci-fi feature “After Earth”.

The pact allows Virgin Produced the option to co-produce, co-finance and co-market a sequel to the M. Night Shyamalan-helmed movie should it go ahead. The two companies will also look into developing film and television properties together.

The deal with Overbrook is thought to be the first in several production company alignments that Virgin Produced will make deals on.
