Orion HV to release 2 Steinhardt Baer pix

Orion Home Video has signed an agreement to distribute two of Steinhardt Baer Pictures’ upcoming low-budget films to the domestic homevideo marketplace.

Although theatrical, foreign and television rights are not included in the current deal, Steinhardt Baer, which is housed in Orion’s Century City offices, plans to continue negotiations with Orion.

“They don’t have first refusal, but our relationship is such that we’ll be discussing other rights with them and give them the opportunity to bid,” says Steinhardt Baer general partner Tom Baer.

The first film is “Playmaker,” a psychological thriller directed by Yuri Zeltser and starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Rubin. It is being produced by Baer with Marc and Peter Samuelson of New Era Prods. It is currently shooting in Los Angeles.

The second is “Dead Badge,” a police action drama written and directed by Douglas Barr and produced by Baer. Casting is slated to begin by the end of the month and principal photography on Oct. 18.

“Both films will be ready for video release in January of 1994 at the earliest,” adds Baer. “But when they go to video will depend on our exploitation of all other venues.”
