Spike gets a pic ‘Kick’

Cabler takes film as part of Lionsgate package deal

“Kick-Ass” is heading to Spike TV.

Movie is part of a male-friendly theatrical package that Lionsgate has sold to the cabler.

Besides action laffer “Kick-Ass,” Lionsgate has sold the thrillers “Bangkok Dangerous,” “Gamer” and “From Paris With Love” to Spike.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed. But if the traditional 12% of domestic gross were used as a benchmark, then the deal is likely worth upwards of $13 million (or more, depending on where “Kick- Ass” winds up).

“Kick-Ass,” which was released in April, will be available to Spike TV starting in December 2012. Film has so far grossed around $47.5 million domestically.

From Paris with Love,” released in February, will be available to the network in September, while “Gamer” will hit Spike in April 2012. “Bangkok,” released in September 2008, comes to Spike next February.

Lionsgate’s exec VP of TV sales, Rand Stoll, and Spike TV programming senior VP John Griffin negotiated the pact. Deal was announced by Lionsgate TV programming/production prexy Kevin Beggs.

Nicolas Cage stars in both “Kick-Ass” and “Bangkok.” John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers topline “From Paris,” while Gerard Butler and Michael C. Hall star in “Gamer.”

“These films offer the kind of no-holds-barred entertainment Spike TV viewers have come to expect,” Beggs said.
