UK distributor Redbus Film Distribution has struck a video and DVD deal with Warner Home Video, which gives the company sole rights to distribute and market up to 25 titles a year until 2003.

The deal kicks off with Academy Award-winning documentary One Day In September.

Other films to go through the arrangement include Ben Elton's Maybe Baby, starring Hugh Laurie and Joely Richardson; Under Suspicion, with Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman; and The Big Kahuna, with Kevin Spacey and Danny DeVito.

Redbus plans to give the films a video-on-demand outing through its parent filmgroup, the Internet distribution operation which is seeking to partner with cable or telecommunications companies after cancelling flotation plans.
