    I've been contacted to have one of my tunes used in a film.
    The film probably won't make a profit, but hey, who knows?
    I'd like to find a contract whereby I receive royalties if the film makes a profit.
    Can anyone point me to something of that sort?

    Better for you if you can get paid off the top (gross), before any profit or loss is determined (net).

    Film (like music) industry has ways of making it look like nothing, EVER makes a profit.
