LONDON — Soda Pictures has picked up the U.K./Ireland rights to six films helmed by Jim Jarmusch.

The library titles are “Permanent Vacation,” “Down By Law,” “Stranger Than Paradise,” “Mystery Train,” “Night on Earth” and “Dead Man.”

Soda released Jarmusch’s latest pic, “Only Lovers Left Alive,” earlier this year.

The six re-mastered films will be released digitally on Sept. 15 to coincide with the digital, DVD, Blu-Ray and Steelbook release of “Only Lovers Left Alive.”

A Blu-Ray box set of the six films will be released Oct. 6. To coincide with this, Soda will give a theatrical release to “Down By Law.” A complete retrospective of Jarmusch’s features will run at BFI Southbank in London Sept. 9 to Oct. 7, with a smaller selection of pics going on tour around the U.K.

The library deal was negotiated between Brigitte Suarez of The Match Factory and Eve Gabereau of Soda.
