Weinstein pic package makes splash at Pool

Deal includes 'Killshot,' 'Clerks II,' 'Sicko'

Berlin-based rights trader Eastern European Acquisition Pool has picked up 13 titles from the Weinstein Co. for the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland and Bulgaria and, for selected pics, the former Yugoslavia and Romania.

Deal includes John Madden’s “Killshot,” exec produced by Quentin Tarantino; Kevin Smith’s “Clerks II”; the Tarantino/Robert Rodriguez-helmed “Grind House”; and Michael Moore’s new docu, “Sicko.”

EEAP will distribute the pics via its partners in each country: Palace Pictures in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, Budapest Film in Hungary, Sunny Films and Big Bang! in Bulgaria. In Poland EEAP’s titles are handled by parent A-Company Consulting & Licensing. Cinemania takes them in the former Yugoslavia, ProRom Media Trade in Romania.

“Now we’ve got to prove that we’re the right partners for the Weinstein Co., ,” said EEAP topper Alexander van Duelmen, who hopes to continue working with the Weinsteins. “The cooperation with the Weinstein Co. should increase EEAP’s market share in the region considerably.”

A-Company, established in 2003, also is active in Russia and the other former Soviet Union territories. Although EEAP’s Weinstein deal excludes Russia, Duelmen said acquiring Russian rights is still an option for EEAP.
