Hollywood Reporter on DreamWorks Animation vs. Paramount

by on August 5, 2011

The Hollywood Reporter has examined the ongoing conflict between DreamWorks Animation Studios SKG and Paramount Pictures over the DreamWorks distribution deal. The tiff over the distribution contract began earlier this year, when DreamWorks requested a reduction in the distribution fee they pay to Paramount while Paramount wanted to increase it. The article examines the multiple steps along the way that have escalated this conflict, ranging from Paramount’s announcement to establish its own feature animation studio, the likelihood of DreamWorks selling out to another established player in the entertainment industry, and even personal slights between DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and Paramount Pictures CEO Brad Grey.
