Huayi Bros in talks for funding Hollywood movies, WSJ says

China’s Huayi Brothers Media Corp. (300027.CN) is in talks to join a group that would fund movies to be produced by former Warner Brothers film chief Jeff Robinov, the Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday, citing people with knowledge of the negotiations. Aiming to produce about five films a year, Robinov is putting together a group of financiers in which Huayi could play a significant part, the paper said. If the plans succeed, it would mark the most significant investment ever by a Chinese company in American film production, the Journal noted.
