Mary Parent Joins Paramount

Mary Parent has found herself now at Paramount, and she brought Cale Boyter and Luke Ryan with her. I expect great things from her at Paramount now that she’s out from under the restrictive chains she was running under at MGM. It might also be good to know that she appreciates Joss Whedon’s talents.

A smaller percentage of the customer base makes up a larger percentage of the business. For a more detailed bit on this info, check it out at [slashfilm.com]
