Constantin builds global rights for ‘Stonehenge’

Impact Pictures to co-produce epic's adaptation

BERLIN — Germany’s Constantin Film will co-produce an epic pic based on Bernard Cornwell’s bestseller “Stonehenge B.C. 2000,” the latest in a number of recent international production deals.

Constantin will take all rights worldwide in all media to the film, which tells the story of the rivalry between three brothers as the celestial temple Stonehenge is built.

Paul Anderson and Jeremy Bolt’s Impact Pictures, which has offices in L.A. and London, will co-produce the film. Their previous production credits include “Mortal Kombat” and “Event Horizon.”

In March, Constantin unveiled plans to co-produce the $20 million TV series, “The Mists of Avalon” with Warner Bros. and TNT.

Escape Artists pact

That followed on from an output deal with the newly formed L.A.-based Escape Artists announced in February.

Back home, Constantin is riding high after a number of recent box office hits. Company holds a 33% stake of the box office and the No. 1 spot with its German lingo production “Harte Jungs” (Hard Lads).

Issuing results for 1999 last week, Constantin last year generated sales of DM126.1 million ($62 million) and saw losses di-minish by 50% to $1.8 million.
