In the latest deal to exploit its library, Miramax has entered into a domestic distribution agreement to have Echo Bridge Entertainment distribute 251 of its titles on DVD and Blu-ray. The films include selected titles from such franchises as Halloween, Hellraiser and Children Of The Corn!!
Echo Bridge chairman and president Michael Rosenblatt said they were excited about adding these titles to their library became “many have tremendous star power and are cult classics.”
Miramax CEO Mike Lang said that although many of these movies have been around for years “in many cases” they “have never been fully exploited.”
Lang was appointed CEO this year by the Filmyard Holdings which acquired the Miramax name and nearly 700-title library from Disney late last year for $663 million. The new Miramax has focused on distribution and exploitation of the library but so far has not moved into distribution, although it did make a deal with the Weinstein Co. to license or joint venture on some remakes.
Which Halloween, Hellraiser and Children Of The Corn sequels do you want o see on Blu-ray? I’d love Halloween II and III, and wouldn’t mind the three Hellraiser sequels.
