SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian planemaker Embraer said in a securities filing on Friday it has not received any official new proposal from Boeing about a possible tie-up, but said it is in talks about a joint venture that could create a third company.

A Brazilian government source told Reuters the latest proposal for a tie-up between Boeing Co <BA.N> and Embraer SA <EMBR3.SA> included the creation of a third company. But Embraer said in its filing that no deal is guaranteed.
