Amy Pascal Out as Co-Chairman at Sony

Hosted by and

Even though Amy Pascal's tenure as top dog at Sony is coming to an end, she'll still be at the studio, working in a new production venture that will include movies like the new all-female Ghostbusters. Pascal has been known as one of the most talent-friendly studio heads, an attribute that sometimes got her in trouble for being overindulgent in her spending. She was also known for her willingness to take on edgy movies like Zero Dark Thirty, but may have gone too far with The Interview. The Seth Rogen comedy about the assassination of Kim Jong-un is the film that led to the devastating hack attack on the studio last November. The question now is who will take Pascal's place. No one has been named yet, but candidates include former studio heads Jeff Robinov and Tom Rothman.
