Jerry Bruckheimer, one of Hollywood's most powerful producers, is returning home. The veteran filmmaker, who had an enormously successful run on the Paramount Pictures lot with "Flashdance," "Beverly Hills Cop," "Top Gun" and other movies in the 1980s and early 1990s, is headed back to the studio. Bruckheimer, 70, signed a three-year, first-look deal with the Viacom Inc.-owned studio. It begins in April, after his 23-year partnership with Walt Disney Co. ends.

The spectacular 22-year partnership of Walt Disney Co. and producer Jerry Bruckheimer will come to an end next year, signaling the Burbank company's changing priorities and how the shifting sands of the movie business are affecting A-list producers. The producer's first-look deal with Walt Disney Studios will not be renewed when it expires in 2014, ending a run that resulted in 27 movies -- from early hits like "The Rock" and "Armageddon" to the long-running "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise -- and almost $9 billion in box-office receipts.

The news Thursday that the Walt Disney Co. and producer Jerry Bruckheimer would not renew their deal with when it expires in 2014 was not a surprise, but it does mark the end of an era.

Walt Disney Co. and producer Jerry Bruckheimer will not renew their first-look deal when it expires in 2014, ending a relationship that resulted in 27 movies and lasted more than 20 years. Bruckheimer, whose summer tentpole "The Lone Ranger" was a costly disappointment, "is looking to produce more mature films outside the scope of the Disney brand," Burbank-based Disney said in a statement late Thursday. Before "Lone Ranger," Bruckheimer teamed with Disney on the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "National Treasure" film franchises.

Viacom Inc.'s MTV and award-winning television and film producer Jerry Bruckheimer will launch a video game studio, marrying Hollywood and technology in what has been historically an uneasy alliance. Bruckheimer is the producer of Walt Disney Co.'s wildly successful "Pirates of the Caribbean" film franchise and TV hits such as "CSI."

After six weeks of negotiations, Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer have turned down Paramount's offer to produce "Beverly Hills Cop III." The studio had hoped to get the project off the ground next summer with Eddie Murphy--who last week extended his long-term deal with Paramount--in the starring role. It was unclear what impact the development will have on the future of the project. Hiring Simpson and Bruckheimer has never been a prerequisite of Murphy's participation.

Those waiting for the further adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow will have to wait a little longer. In what will probably be seen as another blow to the once seemingly invincible producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the release date of the fifth installment of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise has been changed from July 10, 2015, to the ominous sounding “unset.” The change was noted in a brief message sent out Tuesday afternoon as a “Walt...

On the same day that the Walt Disney Co. estimated it may lose as much as $190 million on the disastrous "Lone Ranger," a British interview with the filmmakers surfaced in which the creative team blamed the epic failure on ... American critics. REVIEW: Not even Johnny Depp can save 'The Lone Ranger' In a junket interview with Yahoo UK/Ireland, "Lone Ranger" stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer, director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer said that reviewers torpedoed the film by prejudging it.   "I think the reviews were probably written when they heard that Gore and Jerry and I were going to do 'The Lone Ranger,'" Depp said of the $250-million production, which has grossed just $177 million worldwide to date.

In Walt Disney Studios' remake of "The Lone Ranger," the masked lawman and his loopy sidekick, Tonto, stop a runaway train, are beaten by bad guys and besieged by scorpions, and blow up a massive bridge with dynamite - all while trying to avenge the death of the Lone Ranger's brother and save his wife and child. The stakes for the studio might be even higher. Disney is making a big bet on a character that is largely unfamiliar to the young moviegoers who are the key demographic for big summer movies.

ALBUQUERQUE - Johnny Depp was the picture of breezy relaxation as he walked bare-chested across the "Lone Ranger" film set in the high desert of New Mexico last May - despite the punishing midday glare and the pelting sand from a brewing windstorm. "At the very least, I'm one of the lucky ones, since I don't have to wear a shirt," said Depp, who plays a reimagined version of Tonto that defies the standard sidekick expectations in the film that arrives in theaters on July 3 as the most expensive Hollywood western ever made.

Against all reason, I'm going to try to say some nice things about producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the man responsible for "Armageddon," "Coyote Ugly" and now "Pearl Harbor." At least I think I am. When you sit down to write, you can never be quite sure how it will turn out. Which is definitely not the case with Jerry Bruckheimer's movies. There I go again, needling Mr. B.

Jerry Bruckheimer grew rich churning out fast-paced, thumping action films aimed squarely at the teenage boys who rule the multiplex: "Top Gun," "The Rock," "Con Air." But the 59-year-old super-producer has spent much of the past five years wooing a much different crowd -- the older and far more female-skewing audience that stays home. And now the results are shaking up prime-time TV.

Director-producer Tony Scott, who apparently committed suicide Sunday in San Pedro at age 68, left behind a lengthy filmography. One of the first directors to make the transition from commercials to features, he helmed movies including "Top Gun,” “Beverly Hills Cop II” and “Unstoppable” and served as producer or executive producer on many other movies, including this summer's “Prometheus,” directed by his older brother, Ridley Scott....
