Along with scoring six Golden Globe nominations last week, “The Departed” landed a TV deal with FX.
The cable network has acquired Martin Scorsese’s hit drama along with three other Warner Bros. films: “V for Vendetta,” “The Wicker Man” and “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.”
Under a four-year agreement, said to be in the worth in the $18 million-$20 million range for all titles, FX will get “Departed” and “Wicker Man” in early 2009 and “Vendetta” in late 2008.
The network’s window on “T3,” which already airs on television, will start in about a year.
“Departed” is Scorsese’s highest-grossing film, raking in about $120 million to date. The crime thriller, an adaptation of the 2002 Hong Kong feature “Internal Affairs,” received Globe nominations for best drama; best actor for Leonardo DiCaprio; supporting actor for Jack Nicholson and Mark Wahlberg; best director for Scorsese; and best screenplay for William Monahan.
“Wicker Man,” starring Nicolas Cage, grossed $23.6 million in the fall.
The Wachowski brothers’ “Vendetta” grossed $70.5 million last year.
