Disney has announced that it has extended its film distribution deal with New Regency, which originally had a deal with Fox before 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures was purchased by Disney.
New Regency are behind many great films like “Ad Astra”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Fight Club”, “Gone Girl” and many more. Many of which are available on Disney+ internationally.
This new long term deal will see Disney market and distribute New Regency’s new theatrical releases across multiple platforms.
Milchan, New Regency’s chairman and CEO, said in a statement:
“The whole team at Disney is fantastic and we couldn’t be happier to have them as our partners. This is the perfect home for our movies, and we look forward to continuing this successful relationship,”
Justin Connolly, president, platform distribution at Disney Media and Entertainment Distribution also added:
“We’re incredibly pleased to extend our long-standing and highly regarded relationship with New Regency to market and distribute their films. We look forward to bringing their entertaining slate to audiences around the world for many more years to come.”
Some of the upcoming titles set to be released by 20th Century Studios include “Deep Water”, “True Love”, “Blitz” and “Artemis”.
This new deal will no doubt provide 20th Century Studios with many more films, both theatrically but then available to stream on Hulu and Disney+.
