WB gains rights to Wood starrer
Warner Bros. Domestic Cable has bought U.S. and Canadian ancillary rights to independently made theatrical pics “Green Street Hooligans” and “Dot the I.”
Warners’ deal for each movie starts with DVD and continues with pay-per-view, pay TV and basic cable.
Warners also picked up Internet rights to the two pics, covering video-on-demand, streaming video and cell phones.
“Hooligans,” now in theaters in the U.S., where it has grossed a modest $236,000 during its first four weeks, stars Elijah Wood as an American who moves to London and becomes involved with soccer thugs. U.S. distributor is Odd Lot Entertainment.
Warners is billing the 2003 movie “Dot the I” as the first English-speaking role for Gael Garcia Bernal. Love-triangle drama grossed $306,000 in U.S. theaters two years ago.
