Constantin Film has extended its contract with pay TV platform Premiere for another two years.
The shingle’s distribution arm Constantin Film Verleih and the paybox linked up on pay TV rights two years ago. Constantin claims this has substantially strengthened the development of its license trading biz.
The extension covers Constantin’s inhouse and international co-productions that start shooting in 2007 and 2008.
These include Roger Avary’s adaptation of computer game franchise “Driver” and the film version of relationship guide “Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps” by German helmer Leander Haussmann.
The first deal gave Premiere the rights to “Resident Evil: Extinction” and “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer” among others.
Additionally, the two sides pacted on sales of pay TV rights for various international films licensed by Constantin, including “The Interpreter,” “Ocean’s Twelve” and “The Chronicles of Narnia.”
