From The Hollywood Reporter: Bryan Cogman Moves Overall Deal to eOne (Exclusive)
Bryan Cogman is on the move.
The Game of Thrones Emmy winner has moved his overall deal from Amazon to Entertainment One. Under the multiyear pact, the writer and producer will create and develop new projects for the independent studio overseen by global TV president Michael Lombardo.
The first project under the pact is a contemporary take on Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo. (The 1961 samurai pic was the source material for Clint Eastwood's spaghetti Western A Fistful of Dollars.) Mark Gordon Pictures, which has its own pact with eOne, is teaming with Cogman for the Yojimbo update.
Cogman is fresh off a two-year deal with Amazon, where he served as a consulting producer on the retail giant/streamer's highly anticipated TV adaptation of The Lord of the Rings. He departed the series after completing work on scripts for season one. Production on the first season is underway in New Zealand.
