TMG Int'l takes nine Mutual Film titles

Acquires world rights to package of library films

BERLIN -- TMG International, the world sales company set up last year by German media giant Tele Munchen Group, has signed a deal with the Mutual Film Company to take worldwide rights outside of the U.S. for nine library films, including Mike Nicols' "Primary Colors" and "Wonder Boys" from Curtis Hanson.

Other titles in the package include Milos Forman's 2000 Berlinale Golden Bear winner "Man on the Moon," Sam Raimi's "A Simple Plan," Peter Hyams' "The Relic," Andrew Bergman's "Isn't She Great," Mikael Salomon's "Hard Rain," John Bruno's "Virus" and "Black Dog" directed by Kevin Hooks.

Tele Munchen released all nine titles in Germany through its theatrical arm Concorde.

In addition to library titles, TMG International will be hawking newer wares at this year's European Film Market, including Bavarian comedy hit "The Legend of Brandner Kaspar," directed by veteran Joseve Vilsmaier ("The Harmonists") and starring German boxoffice king Michael "Bully" Herbig ("Manitou's Shoe").
