Nov 6, 2017  •  Post A Comment

As part of an ongoing shakeup among the executive ranks at Viacom-owned Paramount Pictures, the company’s head of worldwide marketing and distribution, Megan Colligan, is out, Variety reports.

“The move comes as newly installed studio chief Jim Gianopulos continues to shake up the top executive ranks at the troubled company in the wake of a series of film flops such as ‘Ghost in the Shell’ and ‘Baywatch,'” Variety reports. “Paramount’s latest bomb, ‘Suburbicon,’ a dark satire from George Clooney, debuted to a dreadful $2.8 million. It has eked out $5.1 million in two weeks of release.”

The report adds: “In September, Gianopulos ousted Marc Evans, the motion picture group president, and replaced him with Wyck Godfrey, the producer of ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ and ‘Twilight.’”

It is unclear who will replace Colligan, the report notes.
