Leonine & Lionsgate Ink Three-Picture Pact


Leonine Studios and Lionsgate have tied up a three-picture all-rights deal for Germany and Austria.

Leonine Studios secured the territory rights to Borderlands, Eli Roth’s adaptation of the best-selling video game; White Bird: A Wonder Story, the companion film drawn from the universe of the 2017 box office hit Wonder; and the action-comedy The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.

The deal comes after the successful collaboration between Lionsgate and Leonine Studios on global hit Knives Out.

Fred Kogel, CEO of Leonine Studios, said: “We are proud to continue our close relationship with Lionsgate, an esteemed partner for top content, as we firmly believe in a strong box-office performance of high-quality event movies. We have built our theatrical slate as well as our digital and linear distribution based upon this strategy and will continue to do so.”
