It seems that Lionsgate has spilled the beans a bit on iTunes offering of feature length films.

In a story from AppleInsider, it appears that during a quarterly conference call Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer accidentally spoke more than he should have about the finalization of some of the studios online content plans.

"We also have digital delivery deals in place with Cinema Now, MovieLink, and iTunes," Feltheimer said, "with upcoming announcements with at least two more major industry players."

When questioned about the "iTunes service launch" Lionsgate studio president Steve Beeks stated, "I think most likely some time before the end of the year."

He then went on to say, "We know when [Apple is] planning on launching, but since they have not announced it publicly, I do not think it is our place to say anything more about that."
