As China continues its rapid growth as a film market, Paramount Pictures said today that is expanding and relocating its Middle Kingdom office. Moving from Shanghai, the new digs will be set up in Beijing; the capital city is the hub of film production, distribution and marketing in China. The switchover is expected to take several months. The studio also said that 14-year company veteran Zhe Chen, General Manager of Paramount China, will not be relocating to Beijing due to family reasons. A new GM is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
