The striking Writers Guild of America said Thursday it has signed interim deals with The Film Department and Intermedia Film.
Patric M. Verrone, president of the guild's West Coast branch, said the companies recognize the importance of an agreement that fairly compensates writers. No details of the deals were released.
Other deals allowing writers to go back to work have been reached with independent production companies such as Marvel, RKO Productions and United Artists.
Intermedia's film library includes "The Hunting Party" and "Breach." Former Miramax Films executives founded The Film Department last year.
The writers guild, on strike since Nov. 5, is in informal talks with studio bosses to reach an agreement on a long-term contract and end a costly three-month walkout.
