EuropaCorp has entered into an agreement with Germany’s Universum Film which will give the latter all media rights to the French studio’s next 23 productions.

The agreement covers Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg and German-speaking Switzerland and is initially set up for three years with an option to extend to include a fourth.

In a statement, EuropaCorp said the legal and financial terms of the pact are in keeping with a classic distribution deal and include the payment of MGs.

Also in the statement, EuropaCorp noted its intention to conclude similar distribution deals in other European territories.
