Weinstein & Showtimes Make A Deal

Showtime Networks and The Weinstein Company have signed a seven-year deal for up to 95 films including “Nine,” “Inglorious Bastards,” “Scream 4” and many more.

The new output deal includes TWC’s 2009 release schedule, most notably Tarantino’s “Bastards” which was erroneously reported to have gone to Miramax on Friday.

Additional titles include Andrew Jarecki’s “All Good Things” starring Ryan Gosling and Kirsten Dunst, a modern remake of Kurosawa’s legendary “Seventh Samurai,” the screen adaptation of author Paulo Coelho’s best-selling novel “The Alchemist,” and Richard Shepard’s “Panic” based on Jeff Abbott’s best-selling book.

The output deal also includes releases from Dimension Films such as “Youth In Revolt,” based on C.D. Payne’s bestselling book and starring Michael Cera, “6 Billion Dollar Man,” the remake of David Cronenberg’s “Scanners,” re-starting the “Scream” franchise with “Scream 4,” and “Piranha 3D.”
