Report: Universal Bosses Out Soon


The acknowledged regrouping at Universal may take a bloody turn -- and soon, according to rumors orbiting the lot. The climate is such, says one exec, that "you're feeling chaos in ways that you've never felt before [...] It's completely taken the fun out of the process." (And that's if your project was lucky enough to have escaped the studio's recent development moratorium.) Co-chairmen Marc Shmuger and David Linde are reportedly considered front runners for the ax despite having signed new contracts last January; some suspect president Ron Meyer wants to install a few pets, including marketing boss Adam Fogelson and production head Donna Langley, in their place. On the other hand, maybe Couples Retreat will change everything! All right, never mind. [The Wrap]
