EXCLUSIVE: Just five months after shepherding the Star Trek video game to its epic fail of a release, Paramount SVP Brian Miller is on his way out, Deadline has learned. The Paramount veteran will continue in his post as SVP of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships and Consumer Products through the end of the year as part of a mutual exit decision reached with the studio. I’m told Miller is looking to pursue personal projects after 14 years at Paramount. But the timing comes conspicuously on the heels of May’s Star Trek video game debacle which Miller produced in-house and did heavy media promotion for. Developers Digital Extremes and Namco took much of the blame for the widely panned video game, notably from Trek director JJ Abrams who in September called it a “big disappointment” and suggested that the game’s poor quality and reviews hurt the release of his Star Trek Into Darkness. Unlike those developers, Miller had boldly gone front and center for Paramount as the face of the video game doing press left and right and, insiders say, tying his fate to the game’s. Miller declined a request for comment.
