Ghost Rider Joins the FX Library
FX has worked a deal with Sony to pick up five new movies including Ghost Rider.
FX will pay Sony a total license fee in the low $30 millions for a four-year exclusive window to Ghost Rider and the Sandra Bullock thriller Premonition, and a two-year exclusive on Underworld: Evolution and The Grudge 2. For a fifth Sony title, the 2006 remake of When a Stranger Calls, FX gets a two-year window after TNT plays the first batch of runs.
Though FX has got the network exclusives on the films, they will still have to wait for Starz to premiere them first.
Like Spider-Man 3, Sony was sure to negotiate the right to sell Ghost Rider to other networks during FX's four-year term.
