LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - The Hollywood directors' union reached a contract deal with major film and television studios on Thursday, Daily Variety reported, in a move that could hasten the settlement of a 10-week-old screenwriters' strike.

The tentative pact between the Directors Guild of America and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers was reported five days after the two sides opened formal negotiations.

Neither side's representatives could immediately be reached for comment.
