Revolution Buys Half the Rights to Natalie Portman’s ‘Black Swan’

Revolution Studios has bought 50% of the rights to 2010’s “Black Swan” from Cross Creek Pictures for an undisclosed price.

The thriller, starring Oscar winner Natalie Portman, grossed $329 million at the worldwide box office. Worldwide distribution rights continue to be controlled by Fox Searchlight, which co-financed and owns the remaining 50% share.

“The opportunity to acquire a stake in a major film of this caliber doesn’t come along every day,” said Revolution Studios chief operating officer Scott Hemming.

Revolution bought the 64-title Morgan Creek international library in October for $36.75 million, including “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective” and its sequel, “The Last of the Mohicans,” “Young Guns,” the “Major League” franchise and “The Whole Nine Yards.”

Revolution Studios, founded by Joe Roth in 2000, was acquired in June by Fortress Investment Group, which manages $60 billion in assets.
