A new leading candidate has emerged for the top job at Paramount after a second round of talks, with Deadline.com reporting that former 20th Century Fox Chairman Jim Gianopulos is now the front-runner.

Scott Stuber, the former co-president of Universal Pictures and former vice chairman of worldwide production for Universal, was courted for the Paramount job but is now expected to oversee original films at Netflix.

The report notes that Michael De Luca, who just produced the Oscars, is seen as a likely candidate to oversee Paramount’s motion picture division.
