Fluid’s films will flow to Nordisk

Deal runs through 2006, with option to renew

AMSTERDAM — L.A.-based Fluid Films and Danish entertainment giant Nordisk Film have inked a first-look deal that gives the Scandi powerhouse Nordic distrib rights and an equity position that guarantees 10% of the budget for the films selected.

The deal runs through 2005 and 2006, with an option to renew.

Fluid was launched in 2004 by Danish national Nina Leidersdorff. Its first pic, “The Last Full Measure,” helmed by Alexandra Kerry, was selected for screening at Cannes last year and January’s Sundance.

The outfit’s pics in development are aimed at American auds but will tap Euro talent, said Lars Hermann, head of co-production for Nordisk Film.

Nordisk, a subsid of Nordic giant Egmont, wants to co-produce six to eight pics a year. Hermann says Nordisk is interested in investing in productions with other international outfits but will lean in the direction of English-lingo pics.

“The kind of thriller with a horror edge that Fluid Films has in development is something we know will travel quite well,” he added.

Upcoming pics include helmer Ernst Gossner’s supernatural thriller “Solstice,” kid thriller “No Dark Things” and soccer drama “El Machito.”
