Hollywood pacts for soundtrack distribution

Disney’s Hollywood Records and Centropolis Entertainment have entered into an exclusive agreement to distribute soundtrack albums on the imprint Centropolis Records.

The first two Centropolis Record releases will be the soundtracks for “The Patriot” and “Autumn in New York.” “Patriot,” a Revolutionary War drama starring Mel Gibson, will be released by Sony Pictures June 30. “Autumn,” starring Richard Gere and Winona Ryder, is a fall project for MGM.

Centropolis partners Dean Devlin, Roland Emmerich and Ute Emmerich and Centropolis Music president Peter Afterman made the announcement Friday with Buena Vista Music Group chairman Bob Cavallo and Mitchell Leib, Hollywood Records’ senior vice president of A&R and soundtracks.

Under the agreement, Hollywood Records will be responsible for marketing and distribution efforts.

“Hollywood Records is the best place for Centropolis Records to call home because not only do they know how to make great soundtrack albums, but they also know how to market them, which is often a weakness in other companies,” said Afterman, an established music suprvisor whose credits include “Honeymoon in Vegas,” “Wild at Heart,” “The Apostle” and “Godzilla.”

“Combined with Centropolis Entertainment’s success in the overall process, we can create a haven for filmmakers who may not be comfortable with the intricacies of dealing with the film-music business,” Devlin said in a statement.
