Warner Bros. Replacing Legendary With Dune Entertainment
It appears Warner Bros. had a plan all along as the film studio looks to close a partnership deal with Dune Entertainment in the wake of Legendary Pictures' departure. Early details on the deal could mean WB will be in a position to take more risks with its superhero films.
How long before DC Comics adaptations bear the logos of DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. and Dune Entertainment? Dune, a subsidiary of Dune Capital, was previously attached at the hip with 20th Century Fox and co-financed James Cameron's "Avatar." With all signs pointing to Legendary partnering with NBC Universal, WB needed a new financial supporter for its upcoming film slate and they've found it in the $400 million dollars Dune brings to the table. The Hollywood Reporter is already reporting that Dune will foot some of the bill for Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel."
A key difference between the deal WB had with Legendary and the deal the studio is negotiating with Dune is that WB will be able to use Dune's $400M as they see fit. Legendary had the option to pick and chose which films they would co-finance. With that difference, is it possible that WB will now look to take more chances and adapt a few B and C-list superhero characters?
