David Ellison’s Skydance Productions has signed writing and producing team Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier to a first-look and consulting deal.

The two-year agreement includes a first-look option on all theatrical and digital projects developed by the team, along with consultancy on the studios content, overall.

“Laeta and Patrick are first-class storytellers and world builders,” said Skydance CEO David Ellison (pictured).

“The work they have done to help us create the new Terminator trilogy is simply phenomenal and is only the beginning of the stories we are going to tell together. I am honoured to welcome them into the Skydance family.”

“We jumped at the chance to continue our relationship with David Ellison, Dana Goldberg [Skydance chief creative officer] and the Skydance team,” said Kalogridis and Lussier.
