According to The Hollywood Reporter, Revelations Entertainment, the nine-year partnership between Morgan Freeman and producer Lori McCreary, said Wednesday that it has joined forces with Intel Corp. to form ClickStar Inc. The new digital entertainment company, which they plan to launch next year, will offer consumers an innovative and potentially controversial way of watching movies in their homes by offering original films online before they play the conventional DVD window.

Revelations and Intel are investing undisclosed sums in the venture, which will be headed by former Sony Pictures executive Nizar Allibhoy, who will serve as ClickStar's CEO. The company was unveiled by Freeman and Intel president and CEO Paul Otellini at the Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference.
