Montreal-based distributor Remstar has signed a two-year multi-picture output deal with Toronto-based Chesler/Perlmutter, the first such deal the production company has secured in three years.

The two-year pact, which includes development funds, will give Remstar first look for Canadian distribution of upcoming titles including the recently completed Tempo In Paris, starring Melanie Griffith, Rachael Leigh Cook and David LaHaye, slated for Autumn delivery.

The next three titles in the pipeline are all family-oriented adventures nearing completion: Touching Wild Horses, starring Jane Seymour; Cybermutt, starring Judd Nelson; and Time Of The Wolf, starring Burt Reynolds and Jason Priestley.

Completed titles in the deal include Zebra Lounge, starring Stephen Baldwin and Kristy Swanson, which debuted at Mifed 2001 and Hostile Intent, starring Rob Lowe and John Savage.

David Perlmutter told Screendaily that it's the first output deal Chesler/Perlmutter has had in three years since its deal with Alliance Atlantis lapsed.
