EXCLUSIVE: After ending a bunch of old producing pacts as the studio remade itself into a family-friendly franchise film factory, Disney’s production president Sean Bailey has made a 2-year first look deal with Gil Netter and his Netter Productions banner. Netter, who had a deal at 20th Century Fox, certainly fits that family mandate: his most recent producing credits include Marley & Me and The Blind Side, which got him nominated for Best Picture. Netter’s currently working on the Ang Lee-directed Life of Pi, based on the Yann Martel novel adapted by David Magee. Netter just wrapped Water for Elephants, the Richard LaGravanese-scripted adaptation of the Sara Gruen novel which stars Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson and Christof Waltz.
