Germany's Helkon Media is believed to have struck yet another US production deal, agreeing to fully finance films in the $10m range from producers Warren Zide and Craig Perry (American Pie, Final Destination) and their production company Zide/Perry under a two-year arrangement. They will be joined in those films by producer Ash Shah.

The trio are already teamed on Fusion International's Repli-Kate, a comedy that Helkon agreed to fully finance earlier this year.

Helkon has been on a production tear of late, most recently tying up with Chuck Roven's Atlas Entertainment in a co-financing venture.
