By Jeff Sneider

Village Roadshow Pictures is spreading the wealth, as the company is nearing a co-financing deal with Sony Pictures, an individual familiar with the arrangement told TheWrap.

The initial slate of projects covered under the deal includes Antoine Fuqua's "The Equalizer" starring Denzel Washington, the "Annie" remake starring Quvenzhane Wallis and Jamie Foxx, the Sacha Baron Cohen spy comedy "Grimsby" and the spooky family film "Goosebumps," based on the popular series of books.

Village Roadshow has been co-financing Warner Bros. movies for years and will continue to do so, as the arrangement with Sony is not exclusive.

More to come…
