Constantin Film closes first look deal with Prime Universe Films

21. Juni 2017

Munich / Los Angeles – Producer Adrian Askarieh’s Prime Universe Films has entered into a 2-year First Look deal with Constantin Film. Under the deal, Askarieh will submit both feature film and television projects to Constantin on a first look basis.

Askarieh’s ability and experience in identifying, acquiring, and creating viable IP material, including video game and projects based on graphic novels, fits into Constantin’s plans to ramp up development and production of their English language slate.

Robert Kulzer: “We are welcoming Adrian into the Constantin family. With his great talent of developing and packaging high-end intellectual properties, we expect him to help us crank up our film and TV output."

Adrian Askarieh added: “I have known Robert Kulzer for a while and just recently met Martin Moszkowicz. But soon after the three of us met, I had no doubt that Constantin Film was the company I wanted to be in business with in a significant way. Martin, Robert, and their entire Constantin team have a tremendous track record in creating valuable film and television content with global appeal. I feel that my company is well positioned to contribute to their future plans and to also benefit from their vast experience and resources.”

Askarieh’s most recent project was 20th Century Fox’s video game-based HITMAN: AGENT 47 and among his upcoming projects is JUST CAUSE which is based on the best-selling Square Enix video game and has AQUAMAN’s Jason Momoa attached to star and SAN ANDREAS’ Brad Peyton attached to direct.

Prime Universe Films will be housed out of the Constantin’s West Hollywood offices. Askarieh was repped by Peter Grossman of “Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler & Feldman, Inc.
