Starz nabs TV rights to four Yari films

Network to air 'Old,' 'Money,' 'Snow,' 'Redline'

Starz has bought exclusive pay TV rights to four movies produced and distributed by Bob Yari, led by “Even Money,” with Danny DeVito, Kim Basinger, Tim Roth and Ray Liotta.

“We have a longstanding relationship with Starz and are pleased to be able to continue that partnership,” said Yari, president of the Yari Film Group.

“Even Money,” directed by Mark Rydell, is a crime drama centered on gambling that saw limited theatrical release in 2007.

The three other titles in the Starz deal are “Kickin’ It Old School,” a Jamie Kennedy comedy about a breakdancer who emerges from a coma after 20 years; “Redline,” an action pic about illegal drag-racing that stars Eddie Griffin, Angus Macfadyen and Nadia Bjorlin; and “First Snow,” a thriller with supernatural overtones, starring Guy Pearce and Piper Perabo.

Previous movies from Yari that premiered exclusively on Starz include “The Illusionist,” with Edward Norton; Sidney Lumet’s “Find Me Guilty,” with Vin Diesel; and “Winter Passing,” with Ed Harris and Will Ferrell.

Yari was a producer of “Crash,” an adaptation of which Starz has commissioned as an upcoming TV series. Yari will be one of the producers of the series.
