Universum picks up ‘Love,’ ‘In-Laws,’ Confidence’

Ottfilm package was part of Aurum deal

German theatrical rights to a package of films originally secured by Berlin-based Ottfilm have been picked up by RTL Group’s distribution house Universum Film.

Sourced from Spyglass, Franchise and Hyde Park and including “Down With Love,” “The In-Laws,” and “Confidence,” the Epsilon titles were to be put through video via Universum and theatrical via Ott’s deal with UIP.

Coin to bankroll Ott’s acquisition was to have come from top-grossing Spanish distribbery Aurum Producciones.

Announced in March, the Ott-Aurum deal was part of Aurum’s attempt to create a pan-European distrib alliance. Universum’s closure on theatrical suggests the Aurum-Ott deal may have fallen through. Ottfilm topper Christoph Ott could not be reached for comment.
