No retirement in sight for Jerry Bruckheimer

BY SANDY COHEN Associated Press

SANTA MONICA, Calif. - On a quiet morning amid the awards-season rush, Jerry Bruckheimer's shaggy golden retriever, Harper, is easily the most animated in the building.

She trots about the production company headquarters, occasionally flopping onto her side for a belly rub, oblivious that her human - one of the most powerful men in Hollywood - is starting a new chapter.

After more than two decades with Disney, where he produced the juggernaut "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "National Treasure" film franchises among many box-office hits, Bruckheimer begins a new partnership with Paramount this month.

At Disney's behest, he closes the previous chapter with a photo book as outsized as some of his productions: "Jerry Bruckheimer: When Lightning Strikes - Four Decades of Filmmaking" is a 10-pound, 300-page chronicle of his career in pictures. Johnny Depp wrote the foreword.

"(It's) a coffee-table book to celebrate the movies that I've made, my time at Disney and my time in the business, basically," says Bruckheimer, sitting in a black leather chair in his two-story office in Santa Monica.

Bruckheimer is excitedabout his career and where it's headed, though he insists things won't change much. He'll still be making movies with Paramount.
