*Annapurna has inked a two-year film production deal with Pastel, the production company behind this year’s Best Picture Oscar winner “Moonlight.”
As part of the deal, Annapurna will get the rights to a feature film already in development from “Moonlight” director, Barry Jenkins.
Details of the plot are being kept under wraps, but Jenkins is also writing the script.
Annapurna, as a whole, will also focus their development initiatives on supporting and producing projects from exceptional and emerging filmmakers.
Brad Pitt’s Plan B, the producers of “Moonlight,” also have a production pact at Annapurna.
