Action star and producer Paul Walker has signed a two-year first-look production pact with Universal Pictures to house his Laguna Ridge Pictures, the studio announced today.

The first project under this agreement is the action thriller “Skyscraper”, based on an original idea by Mike Sobel. Walker will executive produce and star, with Neal Moritz’s Original Films producing. Walker’s most recent film with the studio, “Fast Five”, grossed over $630 million dollars at the worldwide box office, making it one of the biggest films in Universal’s history.

This spring, Walker will start production on “Fast & Furious 6″. Walker is also attached to star in and executive produce “Hours”, alongside producer Peter Safran’s, Safran Company. The thriller, set in post-Katrina New Orleans, is slated to begin production in April. Walker recently starred in and executive produced “Vehicle 19″, also with the Safran Company producing. Laguna Ridge Pictures is run by Walker, Brandon Birtell and manager Matt Luber.
