|Subject: Disney and Dreamworks together? Sat Feb 07, 2009 10:50 pm|| |
Steven Spielberg's DreamWorks SKG production company is in talks with The Walt Disney Co. on a deal to distribute six movies a year as talks have broken down between it and Universal Pictures, a person familiar with the situation said Friday.
The person, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was not finalized.
The talks came as Universal, a unit of General Electric Co.'s NBC Universal, said in a statement it ended negotiations with DreamWorks on a distribution deal the two announced in October, saying Spielberg's company has "demanded material changes to previously agreed upon terms."
"It is clear that DreamWorks' needs and Universal's business interests are no longer in alignment," Universal said.Source
