Relativity Media has partnered with German independent producer-distributor Senator Entertainment for all future Relativity movies to be released by Senator in Germany. The deal extends Relativity’s distribution to most major territories except for Japan, Korea and Italy. Under terms of the arrangement Relativity also becomes a significant shareholder in Senator, the companies said. The movies Senator will release include Hunter Killer, Nicholas Sparks’ Safe Haven and Afterburn. Also under the deal the Amsterdam-based investment group Sapinda Holding, which has provided re-capitalization for Senator, is also a potential investor in what the announcement described as Relativity’s “future strategic initiatives.” Relativity co-president Tucker Tooley described the agreement as “much more than an output deal, it’s a long-term strategic partnership.” Senator CEO Helge Sasse expressed similar hopes and thanked Sapinda “for its incredible support.”
