Sony Pictures TV Int’l, CJ seal deal

Co. will supply slate of films across Asia

SEOUL — Sony Pictures Television Intl. has signed a long-term distribution deal with Korean movie major CJ Entertainment.

Agreement sees CJ Entertainment supply its current and future slate of films to SPTI across Asia, excluding Korea, China and Japan.

Deal allows SPTI to broadcast on its own channels in the region or to re-license to third-party nets. First title to be handled will be Yu Ha-helmed action thriller “A Dirty Carnival.”

Deal follows an earlier agreement between CJ group’s TV arm CJ Media and SPTI, which sees SPTI handle CJ Media’s series across much of the Asia region.

“This deal further strengthens our position as the Asian Hollywood studio, allowing us to bring our clients the very best entertainment product, whether it be Hollywood blockbusters or the latest Asian box office hits,” Ross Pollack, SPTI senior VP distribution, Asia, said. “The deal, along with our newly opened office in Seoul, reinforces our commitment to and investment in the Korean market.”

“We look at this and the CJ Media deal as the beginning of our expanded partnership,” David Shin, executive VP of international business at CJ Entertainment, said.

“Carnival” is nominated for the best editor prize at next week’s inaugural Asian Film Awards.
