'Mischief' winds up at Fremantle


Fremantle Home Entertainment has entered into a joint venture deal with independent U.K. distributor Verve Pictures for the feature film "Mischief Night," which will become FremantleMedia's first theatrical release.

"Mischief Night," from filmmaker Penny Woolcock, opens Friday in the U.K. and is slated for DVD release in March.

The joint-venture agreement grants both parties all rights for the U.K., including DVD and digital distribution (but not free TV). The deal was brokered by Peter Kalhan, senior vp home entertainment and archive sales, with Colin Burch and Julia Short of Verve Pictures.
