Ghost Rider TV Rights go to FX

FX has followed its pickup of Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man 3 last week with a deal for five movies from Sony, led by the Nicolas Cage comic book adaptation 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.

All of the Sony movies will receive their pay TV premieres on Starz in advance of their debut on FX, which gets Ghost Rider in summer ’09.
