Germany's Intertainment has signed a $22.4m multi-picture deal with Spanish distributor Manga Films.
Under the terms of the deal, Manga takes Spanish first-run, free-TV rights to several Franchise pictures that Intertainment has co-financed or acquired through its output deal with the company, including Art of War, starring Wesley Snipes, the remake of the British gangster classic Get Carter, with Sylvester Stallone and The Pledge starring Jack Nicholson. Pictures from Original Voices, with which Intertainment also has an output arrangement, are also included in the deal.
'Alongside the already secured theatrical, video and pay-TV distribution agreements with Warner Brothers and 20th Century Fox, we are now successfully selling the free-TV licences to our films across Europe,' said Intertainment chairman Rudi Baeres.
Intertainment said it is also negotiating free-TV deals for Germany, France, Italy, the UK, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe.
