Entertainment One to handle four to six titles per year

Entertainment One has reached a four-year output deal for DreamWorks Studios films in the U.K. and Benelux territories.

The news, first reported by the Telegraph, was confirmed Sunday night by the two companies.The first film under the agreement will be the remake of “Starbuck,” starring Vince Vaughn, which begins shooting in October for release in 2013.

“We’re delighted to collaborate with Steven Spielberg, Stacey Snider, Jeff Small and the innovative DreamWorks team in two of eOne’s core territories,” said Patrice Theroux, eOne’s president of filmed entertainment, in a statement. “It’s a momentous opportunity to be alongside such esteemed partners and broaden our international slate with top-quality commercial films for years to come.”

DreamWorks president Jeff Small and Theroux brokered the deal via David Garrett’s international licensing and distribution company Mister Smith Entertainment, which came on board last month to replace The Walt Disney Co. in handling DreamWorks’ films in Europe, Africa and The Middle East.

DreamWorks’ domestic distributor, The Walt Disney Company, will continue to handle North America, Latin America, Asia, Russia and Australia. Reliance continues to finance production of DreamWorks’ films and hold distribution rights in India.

“On behalf of Steven and Stacey, we are so excited to be in business with the amazing team at eOne,” Small said. “They are an industry leader in the U.K. and Benelux and we know our films will be handled with the utmost skill and creativity by the eOne marketing and distribution teams.”
