MGM may be ready to roar again following its reemergence from bankruptcy with new leadership, but, according to a report in today’s (Wednesday) Los Angeles Times, it will be supported staunchly by Sony Pictures, which now occupies the Culver City lot that was MGM’s home during its glory days. According to the newspaper, which cited people familiar with the situation, Sony will distribute MGM movies at a low 8-percent fee and also distribute its DVD library after its current home-video deal with Fox expires in September. The two studios will reportedly co-finance some upcoming MGM movies, including the next, still-untitled James Bond film, and MGM will co-finance some Sony films, including the U.S. version of the Swedish hit The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
