EXCLUSIVE UPDATE: The deal is for these three movies: The Smurfs (Sony Pictures, which opens Friday), Men In Black 3 (Sony Pictures), and The Adventures Of Tintin (Paramount Pictures). I’ve learned that Jeff Sagansky of Winchester Capital closed financing for $150 million today. [Mea Culpa: I initially thought this was a deal with Harry Sloan and Jeff Sagansky because the pair recently announced Global Eagle Acquisition Corp. But this is unrelated.] Sagansky, the former CBS and Sony Pictures and Paxson and RHI exec, has come back to the movie biz in a big way with Winchester Capital Management co-founder Jean-Luc De Fanti. Movies that Sagansky and De Fanti co-financed through Winchester include The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. Winchester also financed the third season of TNT TV drama Leverage and arranged a multi-picture financing deal for Luc Besson’s EuropaCorp.
