New Regency has extended its credit facility for an additional five years, the entertainment company behind “The Revenant” and “Gone Girl” announced Tuesday.

The extension includes a revolving facility with a capacity of $ 700 million. It is led by JP Morgan and also backed by financial institutions such as Bank of America, Union Bank, and SunTrust. New Regency also announced that it has entered into a five-and-a-half-year, $ 125 million term loan from The Carlyle Group.

JP Morgan has a decades-long relationship with New Regency and has organized fundraisers several times in the past. The funding announcement comes as much of Hollywood has shut down. The coronavirus has closed cinemas and suspended film and television production. The hope is that theaters can slowly reopen in the coming months and production can resume.

The New Regency deal was originally put in place at 20th Century Fox. He moved to The Walt Disney Company following the company’s 2019 acquisition of much of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire.

His upcoming list includes Adrian Lyne’s “Deep Water” with Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas; “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie,” a musical starring Richard E. Grant, Sharon Horgan, Sarah Lancashire and newcomer Max Harwood; Director David O. Russell’s next project starring Christian Bale, Michael B. Jordan and Margot Robbie, as well as Robert Eggers’ “The Northman” starring Alexander Skarsgård, Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe.
