Image Organization topper Pierre David and Aldos Spagnoli of Spanish independent television company Telcinco have inked a 10-pic pact.

Image has sold the rights to four films, all budgeted at about $3 million each: ”Stranger in the House” and ”Man of her Dreams,” as well as ”The Killing Grounds” and ”Captured,” both in pre-production. Image has agreed to deliver three to four additional films this year and the remaining projects in 1998.

The L.A.-based filmmaker also agreed to an extension of its deal with the Netherlands-based distributor RCV 2001, which will continue to own the license to Image films in Benelux.
