Berman out at Paramount Pictures

Jan. 10, 2007 at 10:54 PM

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 10 (UPI) -- Gail Berman has resigned after less than two years as president and top creative executive at Paramount Pictures, the Viacom-owned studio said in Los Angeles.

The move was first reported Wednesday morning in the Los Angeles Times. Paramount -- which has gone through major management changes and spotty box-office results in recent years -- did not say how it would replace Berman but did say more changes are coming.

"A reorganization of the studio's production structure will be announced shortly," Paramount said in a statement.

Paramount Chairman Brad Grey chose Berman in March 2005 to handle creative issues at the studio.

"Gail's dedication in the last 18 months has been invaluable during this important and historic time at Paramount," said Grey in the statement issued by Paramount.

Sources close to Berman, 49, told the newspaper she plans to start her own company.
