Hopscotch/Entertainment One has signed a three-year output deal to distribute Summit films in all media across Australia and New Zealand.

Hopscotch/eOne is expected to release six to eight films annually in Australia and New Zealand under this agreement beginning with Summit’s next film going into production.

“We couldn’t be more delighted to add the Summit films to our lineup. Summit produces premium commercial films that Hopscotch/eOne will proudly offer to our audiences for years to come,” said Troy Lum, Managing Director, Hopscotch/eOne.

“eOne has been a trusted and steadfast output partner for us over the past several years in both Canada and the UK and we’re proud to have seen them flourish,” said David Garrett, President of Summit International.  “Australia/New Zealand is an important territory for our films and we’ve had the great pleasure of working with Troy and the dynamic Hopscotch team in recent years. We are now delighted to be working with Hopscotch as part of the eOne family.”

eOne acquired Hopscotch earlier this year. The company already had an output deal with Summit for Canada and the UK since 2007; both deals were renewed in May.

Hopscoth/eOne recently had a box office hit with Source Code, which is had acquired from Summit.
