Mitt Romney is heading back to Los Angeles for a fundraiser on March 27, according to Harry Sloan, chairman of Global Eagle Acquisition Corp. and the former CEO of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Hollywood's most prominent Republicans may have been tight-fisted so far in the presidential race, with only a handful of moguls such as Terry Semel and Lionsgate Vice-Chairman Michael Burns cutting checks, but that could change as the field narrows.

Sloan has been one of Romney's biggest backers in the movie business. He has contributed $2,500 to the former Massachusetts governor's campaign. 

Sloan told TheWrap that he will co-host the event on March 27 and that plans to host an industry event for Romney if he secures the nomination. 

Romney has visited Los Angeles shaking a tin cup before. The Republican frontrunner also raised an estimated $1 million at a December fundraiser at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The Romney campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
