Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Sign Deal with Amazon Studios
Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy have signed a deal with Amazon Studios to create original content. The duo currently holds a deal with Warner Bros. that they would have to exit. The Amazon deal is said to worth $150 million over five years but Amazon hasn't commented.
"Jonah Nolan and Lisa Joy are two of the most talented and inventive creators in the business. They have mastered the art of working in tandem as well as individually on so many fantastic projects across film and television. They each bring their own unique storytelling abilities to the partnership, creating unforgettable characters in addictive and compelling worlds. We are ready to jump right in and can't wait to deliver their future projects to our Amazon Prime Video audience", said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios.
Nolan and Joy also commented about the news saying, "We are incredibly excited to begin this new adventure with Amazon Studios. Jennifer Salke's vision for the future of our business is bold and forward-thinking, and she's assembled a brilliant creative team to execute it. We can't wait to dive in to make some bats-t crazy television together. And we're thrilled to continue our collaboration with our friends and partners at Warner Bros and HBO on ‘Westworld,' ‘The Peripheral' and more for seasons to come."
The pair are probably best known for their work as writers and executive producers on HBO's "Westworld".
