This comes as something of a surprise since Kathleen Kennedy’s and Frank Marshall’s production company has been a fixture at Universal and they’re marquee names. But that was before all the cost-cutting with studios under pressure to reshape their term deals. I’m hearing Kennedy/Marshall may land at DreamWorks 2.0 before too long. Makes sense because of their long relationship with Steven Spielberg. Universal also isn’t renewing director Darren Aronfsky, even though The Wrestler is Oscar touted. Then again, he’s not exactly a commercial helmer.
