Default Lionsgate / 国影投資管理有限公司 Deal

As follow on from the Chinese / US Trade deal it seems that there is movement between Lionsgate & CNFC (国影投資管理有限公司) to coproduce 10 films over the next 3 years.

Wang Guowe (President of CNFC) says they will be investing 50% of the production costs - primarily in the action genre.

This is the same guy who is trying to get his company involved in the Avatar sequel and some bizarre 'low budget' Michael Bay film ('low budget' as in major names will only take an equity position).. so who knows whether it will eventuate.

Is anyone is coughing up the $1k for the Film Finance forum in LA (6-March)? If so .. feel free to keep me in the loop!

That would explain why there have been so many InkTip leads for English-language action scripts from Chinese companies lately then...

Is it wise to provide pitches/scripts to Chinese companies via InkTip or anyone since they do not honor our intellectual propery laws?

It's in their best interests to respect them. If they (or Lionsgate) tried to release the film in the west it'd be tied up in court forever and the deal would be rendered worthless.
