MUMBAI: Lionsgate has acquired the North American home entertainment distribution rights to No Greater Love, a touching story about faith and love. Under the terms of the arrangement, Lionsgate obtains the rights to distribute the title on DVD, VOD and EST. Scheduled for a first quarter 2010 release, the movie will be distributed in the Christian marketplace by Thomas Nelson — the world’s largest Christian book publisher and Lionsgate’s exclusive distributor to the Christian market.
Lionsgate executive vice president of marketing & family entertainment Anne Parducci said, "No Greater Love is a beautiful story about the universal themes of faith, love, forgiveness, and reconciliation. The subject matter of the movie is something that anyone can appreciate and relate to.While this movie will certainly perform in the Christian outlets, it is also just the type of faith-based title that we look for to deliver to a wider audience."
No Greater Love is the latest faith-based acquisition for Lionsgate. The studio continues to increase its presence in Christian retail by utilizing its relationship with Thomas Nelson to gain leverage for its existing library of product as well as inspirational theatrical titles.
