Lakeshore inks deals in Spain, Germany

CANNES — Consolidating its international presence, Lakeshore Entertainment has closed output deals with German broadcaster and distributor Tele-Muenchen (TMG) for German-speaking territories and with distributor/producer Aurum Producciones for Spain.

First films in the three-year deals are a Joel Schumacher remake of the French psychological thriller “L’appartement,” and action thriller “Shooter,” to which Keanu Reeves is attached. Paramount is handling U.S. domestic distribution in a split rights deal.

The new German accord is an extension of a former output deal with TMG.

The Spanish deal is Lakeshore’s first with the country, but Aurum has been the preferential distributor for Lakeshore pics, having bought “Passion of Mind,” “The Next Best Thing,” “Autumn in New York” and “The Mothman Prophecies.”

“We already enjoy an excellent relationship with these two strong companies and are delighted to be formalizing business with them for the future,” said Peter Rogers, Lakeshore’s president of international.

The deals link Lakeshore with two of Europe’s most solid distributors. Owned by media entrepreneur Herbert Kloiber, TMG is Germany’s second- biggest rights trading company and an active international pic co-production partner, having co-financed Mutual Films’ “The Jackal,” “Primary Colors” and “Man on the Moon.”

In 1998, Aurum was Spain’s No. 2-grossing indie distributor. “I am very excited with this deal because Lakeshore constantly brings into the marketplace very good, quality studio movies plus a great mix of pics,” Aurum CEO Francisco Ramos said.
