Paramount clinches Goya pics

Major builds on earlier deal with fledgling Spanish distribber

Paramount Home Entertainment Spain has inked DVD/VHS rights to Spain on three new pics from Spanish distribber Goya Films.

Films are the romantic comedy “Our Italian Husband,” starring Brooke Shields, Chevy Chase and Maria Grazia Cucinotta, kleptomaniac thriller “Klepto,” with Meredith Bishop, (Nickelodeon’s “The Secret World of Alex Mack”) and Michael Nouri (“Flashdance”); and “Crazy As Hell,” a hospital-set mystery drama, toplined by Ronny Cox (“Beverly Hills Cop”).

Goya acquired “Italian” and “Klepto” from Showcase Ent. and “Crazy” from PFG Ent.

The new pick-ups build on Paramount Home Ent’s acquisition from Goya in spring of the first three titles acquired for Spain by Goya: “Super Sucker,” “Wendigo” and “100 Mile Rule.”

Paramount will release the new acquisitions in March/April 2005.

In a separate move which broadens Goya’s remit, the distribber has taken Spanish and international distrib rights to the historical documentary “El tren del wolframio,” helmed by journalist Ramon de Fontecha, who won a Goya in 2003 for the docu short “El tunel numero 20.” “Tren” is Goya’s first Spanish pic acquisition.

Docu analizes the export of tungsten ore from Spain to Germany during the Second World War. Goya is studying the possibility of a film based on the historical facts, Goya’s director of sales and distribution Patrick Stuart told Daily Variety.

A Madrid-based outfit focusing on the production and distribution for Spain of TV movies and music shows, Goya Films was launched early 2003 by Spanish entrepreneurs Alfredo Ulloa and Sergio Vidal.

Opening up to non-fiction TV contents, Goya is developing six gameshow formats for six-10 year-old children.
