Deal part of studios' pact to explore co-financing opportunities

MGM has come onboard as a financial partner on Sony’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” which David Fincher is directing from a script by Steve Zaillian.

Sony will handle marketing and distribution, while MGM will handle select international TV licensing on the thriller.

Project is part of Sony and MGM’s recent pact to explore co-financing opportunities on upcoming features. Studios recently partnered on the 23rd Bond pic, which will hit theaters Nov. 9, 2012.
