On the day before the start of international TV market Mipcom, Miramax and Revolution Studios have announced that Miramax has acquired rights over the global television and digital licensing of Revolution titles.
Revolution CEO Vince Totino, Revolution COO Scott Hemming and Miramax executive vice president of worldwide TV sales Joe Patrick made the announcement on Sunday. The deal comes on the heels of Revolution’s acquisition of the rights to Morgan Creek’s library for $36.75 million. The Miramax deal includes those Morgan Creek titles.
The acquisition is an extension of Miramax’s domestic deal with Revolution, as its been distributing Revolution titles domestically since 2012. Miramax will begin representing Revolution titles internationally as rights revert back to Revolution, and Morgan Creek titles will be immediately available internationally from Miramax.
“We are excited to take this next step in our relationship with Miramax, which has proven to be a formula for success on the domestic front,” said Totino in a statement.
Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed.
Revolution’s library includes more than 40 titles, including “American Sweethearts,” “Black Hawk Down,” “XXX,” “13 Going on 30,” “Maid in Manhattan” and “Daddy Day Care.”
Morgan Creek titles acquired by Revolution and now represented by Miramax include “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” “Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,” “The Last of the Mohicans,” “Young Guns,” the “Major League” franchise and “The Whole Nine Yards.”
