‘Batman’ lands at FX

“Batman Begins” has landed its first major deal in the network window. The movie is part of an eight-title package bought by FX from Warner Bros. for a total license fee in the $30 million range. FX gets “Batman” first in the window in late 2007/early 2008 for multiple runs before the title shifts to AMC for a batch of runs, returning to FX to finish out the contract. The FX deal is for three years. A spokesman for FX confirmed the deal but declined to discuss any contractual details. Two other Warners titles will go to FX as first plays: “Constantine,” which the network gets in late 2007, and “Taking Lives,” available to FX in late 2006. AMC has bought some runs of “Constantine” following the FX plays, and Oxygen Media has bought second plays on “Taking Lives.”
