Uni pulls out of 'Tintin' venture

In her Deadline Hollywood column, Nikki Finke reports that the back-to-back 'Tintin' movies, to be directed by Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson, may have suffered a significant setback. Apparently Universal Pictures has pulled out of their co-financing arrangement with Dreamworks, leaving the movie short on funds.

To put a finer point on it Finke actually writes "Universal has declined to exercise an option to co-finance DreamWorks' 'Tintin'".

Dreamworks parent Paramount will have to fill the gap created by Uni's absence.
