Sony teams with Fox for ‘Monuments Men’

Studios will co-finance and share distribution on George Clooney pic

Sony Pictures is teaming with Twentieth Century Fox to co-finance George Clooney’s next movie “Monuments Men,” sources have confirmed to Variety.

Sony will remain the lead studio and distribute Stateside, while Fox will handle international distribution.

The decision to split up the rights and financial commitments has been in the works for a while and has no link to recent speculation that Sony is operating with limited resources in the midst of its biggest-ever year at the box office.

Clooney and his “Good German” co-star Cate Blanchett are expected to topline the pic, which concerns a plot to protect stolen art from destruction by the Nazis during WWII.

Production is skedded to start early next year, when Sony’s production arm ramps up with Denzel Washington starrer “The Equalizer” and David O. Russell’s untitled pic starring Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Amy Adams.
