Warner Bros. has extended an output deal with Herbert Kloiber’s Tele Munchen Group for German-language TV rights to a slew of new titles, including Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns,” Clint Eastwood’s Iwo Jima pic “Flags of Our Fathers” and Wolfgang Petersen’s disaster pic remake “Poseidon.”

Additional titles include M. Night Shyamalan’s “Lady in the Water,” Martin Scorsese’s “The Departed,” Steven Soderbergh’s “The Good German” and local animated pic “Oh wie schoen ist Panama,” based on the book by bestselling children’s author Janosch. Also part of the bundle are upcoming Berlinale screeners “V for Vendetta,” “Syriana” and “The New World.”

In total, package includes some 60 features as well as TV fare.

Agreement expands on Tele Munchen’s $220 million deal with Warners inked in 2004 for a package of films and TV series.

Company has been ratcheting up sales from that package to German webs RTL Television and ProSiebenSat 1.
