Warner Bros Pictures Group has signed The Batman director Matt Reeves (and his production company 6th & Idaho) to a multi-year first-look film deal, according to Deadline. The filmmaker’s Robert Pattinson-led film made over $770 million globally, leading to a sequel that is currently being written. In addition to the film deal, a new television deal has also been signed that will see Reeves continue to develop projects for the company, such as the upcoming The Penguin series with Colin Farrell.
Said Warner Bros Pictures Group Co-Chair/Co-CEO Michael De Luca, they’re “making an investment for whatever Matt feels a pull toward, in the Batman universe and otherwise. He has an open invitation to go wherever his interests take him.”
This, of course, comes as Warner Bros. Discovery continues to make cost-savings decisions through employee layoffs, project cancellations, and other measures.
The Batman sequel is currently not dated.
