Movie directors including Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams are leading an attempt to save the last Kodak factory that manufactures physical film stock.
The digital revolution has led sales of movie film to drop by 96% since 2006.
Tarantino, Abrams and fellow directors Christopher Nolan and Judd Apatow have persuaded Hollywood studios to commit to placing long-term orders, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Kodak told the paper a deal should save the factory in Rochester, New York.
The studios have agreed preliminary orders with Kodak and are now "negotiating formal commitments", the Wall Street Journal reported.
While many film-makers have switched to digital equipment, some retain an affection for physical film.
