Sony and Cross Creek Enter Distribution, Co-Financing Deal

Sony Pictures Entertainment has entered into a co-financing, production and distribution deal with Cross Creek Pictures, the maker of “Black Mass” and “Black Swan.”

The pact is a three-year deal. It reunites Cross Creek with Sony Pictures CEO Tom Rothman, who previously worked with the company on the Oscar-winning “Black Swan” when he ran Fox’s film division. In addition to distributing Cross Creek’s films, both companies will have a chance to co-finance each other’s films if they like certain projects.

Cross Creek has worked with Sony on such films as the upcoming “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and the political drama “Ides of March.” Other films that are due up include the gangster picture “Legend,” the Mel Gibson World War II drama “Hacksaw Ridge” and the Tom Cruise thriller “Mena.” The company previously had a distribution deal with Universal.

Cross Creek was founded in 2009 by Timmy Thompson, Tyler Thompson and Brian Oliver.
