Constantin extending Premiere pact

Films included in deal are 'Resident Evil,' 'Perfume'

Constantin Film has extended its general license contract with pay platform Premiere for another two years.

Distribution arm Constantin Film Verleih and the pay web started their linkup on exploitation of feevee rights two years ago. Constantin said the move has substantially strengthened the profitable development of its license trading biz.

The extension covers Constantin’s inhouse production, as well as international co-productions that start shooting this year and next. 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 rights to pics including “Resident Evil: Extinction” and “Perfume: The Story of a Murderer.”

The two sides also inked an agreement on sales of pay TV rights for various international films licensed by Constantin, including “The Interpreter,” “Ocean’s Twelve” and “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”

Premiere has long-term contracts with all of the Hollywood majors.
