Possible Partnership Between Dreamworks and Sony


Possible Partnership Between Dreamworks and Sony

DreamWorks Animation’s contract with Paramount is scheduled to expire by the end of the year, and rumors are floating around stating that Sony Pictures is the next big studio gunning for a partnership deal with DreamWorks, which is currently riding high on a $6.3 billion plus coming from worldwide ticket sales these past six years.

In a recent Variety report, it has also been revealed that DreamWorks have also discussed with rival studios Warner Bros. and Fox, but experts posit that the best option for DreamWorks is to partner with a studio that doesn’t have its own in-house animation division, as it could result in a conflict of interest. This makes Sony an unlikely choice, as they have a very profitable in house animation division. According to sources, Dreamworks is looking for a better distribution fee of around 7%, as it currently pays Paramount 8% for theatrical and home video releases.

Paramount’s last release with DWA will be November’s Rise of the Guardians unless they extend their partnership, but DreamWorks still has six upcoming movies lined up all the way through 2014, such as The Croods, Turbo, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Me and My Shadow and How to Train Your Dragon 2.
