Lionsgate Sets Distribution Deals for German-Speaking Markets

Lionsgate has reached distribution deals for its movies with Studiocanal and Tele Munchen for the German-speaking markets of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Studiocanal, which already distributes Lionsgate’s films in Germany, has expanded its existing deal to also distribute features from the company’s Summit Entertainment label, beginning with Otto Bathurst’s adventure film “Robin Hood: Origins,” starring Taron Egerton, Eve Hewson and Jamie Foxx.

Lionsgate has also made a deal with Tele München Gruppe to distribute three films — the Afghan War action drama “Horse Soldiers,” starring Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon and Michael Pena, from “Pirates of the Caribbean” producer Jerry Bruckheimer; the sci-fi crime thriller “Kin,” starring James Franco and Zoe Kravitz; and the thriller “Down a Dark Hall,” starring AnnaSophia Robb and Uma Thurman, from “Twilight” producer Stephenie Meyer.

“Horse Soldiers” is Bruckheimer’s first film to come out of the independent sector. It centers on an elite Special Forces team is dropped into Afghanistan on a perilous, top-secret mission to join Afghans in beating back the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies.

Studiocanal handled German distribution of the four films in the Hunger Games franchise, “Sicario” and the studio’s “Saw” movies.

The companies’ multifaceted relationship also includes Lionsgate’s distribution of Studiocanal’s library in North America and Lionsgate’s North American distribution of Studiocanal’s upcoming thriller “The Commuter,” starring Liam Neeson.
