Amid the massive challenges facing Hollywood, the six major studios have added to their number of producer deals for a total of 139, four more than a year ago — but only about half the number there were at the turn of the millennium. The names of some of the players have changed. Some deals, such as Clint Eastwood’s with Warner Bros., are decades old; others, such as the longtime Ron Howard-Brian Grazer pact at Universal, are no more.

That number grew from 19 to 20, less than 15% of all deals, even with the enormous success of Patty Jenkins’ “Wonder Woman.” And the additional deal — Amblin Partners’ pact with Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall — is merely a bit of paperwork, as the indie studio was incorporated into Universal.
