Apparently the massive failure of Michael Bay's The Island is a big reason why the studio had to go on the auction block, at least financially speaking. I'm sure that Bay is pretty much persona non grata in many circles in Tinseltown now.
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures on Sunday said it has agreed to buy DreamWorks SKG Inc., the movie studio co-founded by director Steven Spielberg, for $1.6 billion, including debt assumption.
Paramount said the deal gives it DreamWorks' current projects, including Spielberg movie "Munich," part of future films from the iconic director, and worldwide distribution rights for movies from DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., maker of computer animated movies like smash hit "Shrek."
Paramount further said it is in "advanced discussions" to sell off DreamWorks' 59-title film library shortly after it closes the deal to buy Glendale, California-based DreamWorks.
The deal marks the end of independence for one of Hollywood's major film studios, DreamWorks, which was founded 11 years ago by Spielberg, music mogul David Geffen and movie executive Jeffrey Katzenberg.
New Hariri report 'blames Syria'UN Secretary General Kofi Annan has received the second report into the killing of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
The report is said to detail Syria's alleged role in the murder.
It comes days after United Nations investigator Detlev Mehlis's team questioned five Syrian officials.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad vowed again on Sunday that he would punish any Syrian involved in the murder plot.
Damascus has strongly denied involvement in the car bomb which killed Hariri in February.
But an interim UN report in December has already implicated Syrian officials.
Greaaaaat. Any guess as to where the troops will go next? It's like a parlor game - will they go to Iran next, or Syria? Keep your eye on the ball, ladies and gentlemen, the hand is quicker than the eye! Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!
