Netflix inks deal with TWC’s Radius

Films include 'Bachelorette,' 'Only God Forgives,' 'Butter'

Netflix has inked a multiyear output deal with the Weinstein Co.’s new Radius label for a string of pics starting in early 2013.

Films include a mix of titles from Sundance and Toronto, including Leslye Headland’s comedy “Bachelorette”; “Only God Forgives,” Nicolas Winding Refn’s follow-up to “Drive”; satirical hit “Butter,” with Jennifer Garner; “The Details,” starring Tobey Maguire; and Stephen Frears’ “Lay the Favorite” with Bruce Willis.

Radius is TWC’s multiplatform distribution label led by co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego.

“We are delighted to be extending our relationship again with TWC, incorporating the cutting-edge and crowd-pleasing movies distributed by Radius,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “Weinstein movies like this year’s Academy Award winning best picture ‘The Artist’ and the biggest French box office hit ever, ‘The Intouchables,’ are coming to Netflix in the next few months, and we are looking forward to having the Radius titles soon after,” he added.

“As an independent studio, we embrace all of the new avenues people are choosing to use when seeing their favorite movies,” said TWC co-chair Harvey Weinstein. The pact “is a natural and exciting next step for us, and one that gives us the power to reach a broader audience than ever before.”
