ATLANTIC RECORDS and MELEE ENTERTAINMENT have announced the signing of an agreement to work together to develop a series of motion picture, soundtrack, and recording projects. Under terms of the new ATLANTIC-MELEE pact, MELEE will develop feature films starring ATLANTIC recording artists, while ATLANTIC will bring creative input and/or financing to the projects. When appropriate, ATLANTIC will also market companion soundtrack recordings. In addition, the agreement gives ATLANTIC a first look at any recording artists signed by MELEE.
MELEE, established in 2003 by PRIORITY RECORDS founder BRYAN TURNER, currently has a multi-picture deal with PARAMOUNT PICTURES to produce feature-length music-based movies starring recording artists.
