Just days after Universal issued a statement that all discussions of an alignment with Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios had been finished, Walt Disney Studios has agreed to enter into an exclusive long-term distribution arrangement with DreamWorks. Disney will handle distribution and marketing for approximately six DreamWorks films each year — the first to be released under the Touchstone Pictures banner will hit theaters in 2010. Reliance BIG Entertainment, a partner in DreamWorks, will distribute the new company’s projects in India.
