WB now has an official second co-financing partner, Rat-Pac and Dune Entertainment. As previously reported by THR, the $450 million deal covers virtually all WB and New Line releases (up to 75 films), and last 3-4 years. The deal excludes titles derived from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, or The Hobbit.
Even better is that Rat-Pac will be a passive co-financer (akin to Relativity's previous relationships with Universal, Lionsgate, and Sony)... so Brett Ratner won't be "ruining" this movie or other potential DCU films. And he actually supported the contractual "no creative input" clause.
