TMG extends pact with Augsberger

Companies have worked together for 12 years

BERLIN — Herbert Kloiber’s Tele Muenchen Group has extended its exclusive partnership with Thomas Augsberger’s Los Angeles-based Eden Rock Media for the next three years.

The companies have collaborated for more than 12 years, with Augsberger most recently credited with delivering such high-profile pics as Robert Redford’s upcoming “The Company You Keep,” Terry Gilliam’s “Zero Theorem” and John Carpenter’s “The Ward,” which TMG announced at this month’s European Film Market in Berlin.

Augsberger has been responsible for a number of major film acquisitions on behalf of TMG in recent years, including boffo hits “Twilight” and “Iron Man,” both of which became mega successes for TMG’s distrib arm Concorde.

Thanks in large part to “Twilight” as well as Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” Concorde just posted its best ever January, making it the most successful independent German distrib at the start of the year.

TMG/Concorde is the only independent distributor worldwide that managed to hold on to distribution rights for the “Iron Man” sequel, a feat the company attributes to Augsberger’s negotiating skills as well as to the company’s own financial strength.

Concorde’s increasingly muscular slate includes such upcoming titles as Alex Proyas’ “Knowing,” which hits theaters over Easter weekend in April, Martin Scorsese’s “Shutter Island, which will launch day and date with the U.S. in October, Chris Weitz’s “Twilight: New Moon” early next year and “Iron Man 2” in May 2010.
