In an 11 picture deal, USA Network has secured the rights to airing the current film in the Bourne franchise, The Bourne Ultimatum, in addition to 9 other films.
The terms of the entire deal, which should amount to somewhere in the neighborhood of $60 million, call for the network to pay 12% of the total domestic box office for ‘Bourne’, as well as another Universal film in the deal, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry. Depending on the final gross of those two films, the network will be paying about $35-40 million for those two, with the remaining nine films making up the rest of the cost.
The films in 11 picture deal are Ali G Indahouse, Alpha Dog, Breach, Children of Men, The Good Shepherd, The Hitcher, The Interpreter, Man of the Year and Smokin’ Aces.
