Disney wins rights to distribute next Gibson film

After missing out on Mel Gibson’s $600 million dollar "The Passion of Christ" Disney has bid for and won the rights to distribute Gibsons next film, "Apocalypto".

In winning the deal, Disney had to commit to
stringent distribution terms. Stepping up to finance his second
straight directorial effort puts Gibson is league with George Lucas,
who bankrolled his "Star Wars" prequels and made a deal with Fox to
distribute them.

I wonder if this means Disney is more likely to accept Steve Jobs terms for a continued relationship with Pixar.
