Mutual Film Company, the studios co-financing Paramount Pictures latest action adventure movie Tomb Raider, has signed a three year, nine-picture output deal with Italy's Dynamic Eagle Pictures which begins with Eidos Interactive's silver screen adaptation, according to a report by Screen Daily.

Eagleís deal also includes any Tomb Raider sequels and indicates aggressive renewed activity by Mutualís Gary Levinsohn, who is reportedly close to signing a new producing partner after Mark Gordon left the company last year. The deal was struck between Levinsohn and Mutualís international president Pamela Pickering and Eagle chiefs Stefano and Ciro Dammicco. It expands the pipeline of product secured by Eagle from companies such as Escape Artists, Miramax International, Intermedia, Summit Entertainment and Helkon International Pictures.

The big budget Tomb Raider, which is set for a June 15 opening in the US, is directed by Simon West and stars Angelina Jolie as the interactive video-game character Lara Croft. Producers are Lawrence Gordon and Lloyd Levin.
