Sony Corp.'s movie unit may join with Viacom Inc.'s Paramount to finance Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's planned ``Tintin'' movie, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Sony is close to agreeing to pay half of the $130 million budget for the movie, the newspaper said, without making it clear where it got the information.

Sony is stepping in after Vivendi unit Universal passed on the opportunity deciding the motion-capture computer animation format is ``too risky,'' the Times said. Motion capture computer animation uses 3D-sensors to digitize real-life actor's movements and create animated characters.

Tintin is the title character in a Belgian comic book series.

It looks like Paramount Pictures may have found a co-parent for Steven Spielberg's and Peter Jackson's planned "Tintin" movie, which was orphaned after Universal Pictures opted out over financial concerns.

Sony Pictures is close to finalizing a deal to pick up half the cost of the 3-D motion-capture film, which is budgeted at $130 million before marketing expenses.

"Tintin," to be directed by Spielberg and produced by Jackson, could begin production before the end of the year if negotiations conclude next week, as expected. Spielberg, who has wanted to make "Tintin" since 1983, when his production company, Amblin Entertainment, was based at Universal, had hoped to start shooting in September.

But after he and Jackson submitted a final budget and their rich profit-sharing deals to Universal, the studio passed, deeming it too risky. Under that deal, the picture would have had to gross $425 million in revenue before Universal and Paramount could break even.

Also risky is the fact that other motion- or performance-capture films, in which actors' movements are recorded by sensors and fed into a computer and manipulated, have had a mixed track record at the box office. Sony's "Monster House" grossed $140 million worldwide, and Paramount's "Beowulf" $196 million -- far below the more than $400 million the studios need to earn their investment back on "Tintin."


Officials from Paramount and Sony declined to comment on the negotiations.

Tintin, the subject of a Belgian comic book series about the adventures of a young reporter and his sidekick dog, has a loyal following abroad but is less well known in the U.S. Spielberg and Jackson hope to make two Tintin films, with Jackson directing the second.

Is Hollywood’s next big adventure “Tintin in Culver City”?

After months of deal-making turmoil, the elaborate, two-film “Tintin” series planned by the directors Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson may find its financiers in a partnership being forged by Sony Pictures Entertainment and Paramount Pictures.

Sony, the Culver City, Calif.-based parent of Columbia Pictures, is in advanced negotiations toward a deal to co-finance the films with Paramount, its Hollywood-based rival. The talks were described by people who were briefed on them, and who spoke on condition of anonymity to avoid conflict among the parties.

Kathleen Kennedy, a producer of Mr. Spielberg’s project, did not respond to a query. Peter Nelson, a lawyer for Mr. Jackson, declined to comment, as did a Sony Pictures spokesman, Steve Elzer. A spokeswoman for Paramount also declined to comment.

The negotiations began after Universal Pictures backed away last month from an arrangement under which it would have shared the project, based on the long-running Belgian comic strip about a globetrotting young reporter, with Paramount.

Mr. Spielberg has been eager to begin shooting the first movie as early as this year. Using motion-capture technology that combines live actors with computer animation, he has already filmed parts of the picture. But Universal, which had an option to become involved because Mr. Spielberg started the project there 25 years ago, shocked many in Hollywood by declaring it too risky, despite the participation of Mr. Spielberg, who has kept his offices on Universal’s lot for decades.

The first film’s budget of about $130 million is not exceptionally large by contemporary standards. But Mr. Spielberg and Mr. Jackson, as two of the industry’s most prestigious directors, were demanding nearly a third of the movie’s gross receipts — terms that proved difficult at a time when studios were tightening belts.

Paramount later offered to make the movie on terms it found more favorable, but the directors’ representatives pressed for alternatives. Sony offered to take the movie under a deal more to the filmmakers’ liking, but Paramount was reluctant to let go entirely and began discussing a partnership, according to one of the people briefed on the discussions.

Under the deal now being discussed, Paramount would distribute the “Tintin” movies in North America and some English-speaking territories, while Sony would distribute the pictures in various foreign territories, including Europe and Latin America, according to a person briefed on the talks. In recent years, studios have routinely split some of their more expensive movies, usually by leaving one studio with foreign distribution rights, and another with domestic.

Thus, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” a coming film directed by David Fincher and starring Brad Pitt, will be distributed by Paramount in the United States and by Warner Brothers abroad.

For Sony, a deal would be the first time Mr. Spielberg has worked with the studio as a director since 1991, when he made “Hook” for the company’s TriStar Pictures unit. In 1977, Mr. Spielberg made “Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” one of his biggest hits, for Columbia, long before the studio was acquired by Sony.

The first “Tintin” movie is expected to be ready for release in 2010. Mr. Jackson’s installment would come some time after, but does not yet have a completed script.

For Paramount, a deal would be one more step in the readjustment of its relations with Mr. Spielberg and his new DreamWorks company. The studio had acquired DreamWorks in 2006, but Mr. Spielberg and his associates left to form a new venture under the same name last month.

Mr. Spielberg is expected to remain involved with a number of Paramount projects in coming months. He has a producing role, for instance, on “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” a sequel set for release in June.

Meanwhile, his new company remains entangled with Paramount through their mutual interest in dozens of development projects that are owned by the big studio, but may be produced and distributed through collaborative arrangements between them over the coming years.

Unfortunately we are not yet sure if audiomachine's song goes further than the trailer. some of their previous songs have been used just for trailers

You are right but Friday afternoon will be a special program (Tf2) on this movie and also talk about his music and I think we'll find out if this movie's music or not.
