BREAKFAST DEALS: Packer's silver screen

James Packer is moving into the movie business, while BHP Billiton and Rio state their priorities.

James Packer could make a bit of coin out of his latest media venture, a partnership with a big-time Hollywood director. But his gambling ambitions are front-and-centre, just as his chief rival in NSW gets a new boss. Meanwhile, BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto are offloading non-core assets, revealing their priorities and a few other things in the process. Elsewhere, Talison Lithium officially has a new preferred suitor, Leighton has come to Macmahon’s rescue and Singapore Airlines says 10 per cent of Virgin Australia is enough, for now.
