According to The Hollywood Reporter, Image Entertainment has made good on its promise to acquire more programming. The independent DVD supplier has cut a deal with Regent Studios to release five popular titles on DVD.

The films are Callas Forever, the Franco-Zefirelli-helmed theatrical release that gives a fictionalized account of the final days of singer Maria Callas; the Merchant Ivory comedy Merci Docteur Rey, with Dianne Wiest as an opera-diva mother; horror flick The Sisterhood; Witches of the Caribbean, about a troubled teen with recurring nightmares of a 16th century witch; and Eve's Christmas, about a woman who gets a second chance in life through traveling back in time.

Image president and CEO Martin Greenwald said the Regent deal provides his company with "a very solid array of film content that we know will be welcomed by retailers."
