Barry Jenkins has teamed up with Pastel, the production company behind this year’s Best Picture winner Moonlight. The two-year film production deal includes a feature project to be directed by Jenkins which is already in development at Pastel. The deal also includes future films from PASTEL partners Jenkins, Adele Romanski, Sara Murphy, and Mark Ceryak.

Jenkins is writing a script which will serve as the first project under the deal, but the details are being kept under wraps. The company will also focus their development initiatives on supporting and producing projects from exceptional and emerging filmmakers.

This comes after Plan B signed a three-year deal with Annapurna and is already in collaboration on a film about former Vice President Dick Cheney that Adam McKay wrote and direct as his next feature. Christian Bale is set to play Cheney, Steve Carell will play former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld, and Amy Adams will play Lynne Cheney.
