While we’re still a long way from the new Batman making its debut but it sounds like Matt Reeves is continuing his relationship with Warner Bros. On Monday, it was announced that Reeves will be extending his overall deal to Warner Bros. Television Group. Reeves’ deal was recently under 20th Century Fox Television, which is now owned by Disney.
The multi-year deal will see Matt Reeves and his 6th and Idaho production company develop new projects for various platforms, with the HBO Max service being the major one of them. The projects will be produced in association with Warner Bros. Television, Warner Horizon Scripted Television, Warner Bros. Animation, or Blue Ribbon Content, depending on the platform. Beyond the U.S., Warner Bros. International Television Distribution will distribute 6th & Idaho’s shows to the global marketplace. This will put Reeves under the same chain as his friend and longtime collaborator J.J. Abrams, who has had an overall deal with Warner Media since last fall. The pair previously developed the beloved WB series Felicity together.
He still has projects under different companies to finish before he is to focus on this deal but this is a win for both him and Warner Bros.
