Ashok Amritraj and David Hoberman's Hyde Park Entertainment has concluded a slew of output deals in smaller territories, sealing the patchwork of worldwide deals on its upcoming slate.
Warner Nu Metro has signed a two-year, ten-picture deal with the company in South Africa; three-year deals have been closed in Israel with Forum Film, in the Middle East with Almassa Art, in Iceland with Samfilm and in Turkey with Pinema Prods.
Each of the deals will kick off with Anti-Trust, a thriller set in the high tech world of Seattle computer firms starring Ryan Philippe, Tim Robbins and Claire Forlani. Peter Howitt (Sliding Doors) is directing. MGM has rights in North America, UK, Australia, Latin America and Southeast Asia, and in international territories it will likely be one of the first MGM movies to be distributed through 20th Century Fox International.
Hyde Park has dual distribution agreements with MGM and Walt Disney Studios whereby each studio has alternate first look at a Hyde Park project.
The Kirch Group/Mediaset joint venture Epsilon has all rights to Hyde Park pictures in Europe (excluding UK) for the next five years. Hyde Park will sell Japan itself on each picture.
