USA has some big plans for Universal Pictures.
In a story from Variety, it seems that USA will be spending "about $60 million for network TV rights to The Bourne Ultimatum, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry and nine other theatricals from Universal Pictures."
USA will bring out The Bourne Ultimatum on January 1, 2010. I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry will air on Dec. 1, 2009, "after the pics complete their 18-month exclusive runs in the pay TV window on HBO. USA gets 4 and a half years in its license term."
Recently, USA has started to get more aggressive about buying theatrical films. As recently as last month it bought titles like Blood Diamond from Warner Bros., and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End from Disney.
