Image Has 'Celluloid Dreams'11 Feb, 2008 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Image Entertainment Feb. 11 said it signed a three-film DVD distribution agreement with Paris-based independent producer Celluloid Dreams.
The titles include biopic The Color of Freedom (originally released at the Berlin Film Festival as Goodbye Bafana,) with Joseph Fiennes, Dennis Haysbert and Diana Kruger; action thriller Far North with Michelle Yeoh, Sean Bean and Michelle Krusiec; and World War II prison camp saga Emotional Arithmetic, starring Susan Sarandon, Gabriel Byrne, Max Von Sydow and Christopher Plummer.
Freedom streets May 20 on DVD.
Chatsworth, Calif.-based Image is eager to diversify its slate of new feature film releases following the recent termination of a merger agreement with BTP Acquisitions Co.
That decision has resulted in challenges to separate output deals between Image, ThinkFilm and Capital Pictures, the latter two headed by David Bergstein, CEO of BTP.
