Director Alan Parker, who has two Golden Globe award nominations for “Mississippi Burning,” has signed a three-year production and development agreement with Tri-Star Pictures. Tri-Star will have exclusive, first-look rights to film projects that Parker develops. The deal also enables Parker to undertake “personal projects at modest budgets,” Tri-Star said Wednesday. Although “Mississippi Burning” is an Orion release, Tri-Star distributed Parker’s controversial 1987 film “Angel Heart.” Parker also has plans to direct a film version of “Les Miserables” for the studio.
