  • Warner Bros. gobbles up New Line
    Friday February 29th 2008

The company will be folded into Warner Bros. as a small genre arm, but its two toppers, Bob Shaye and Michael Lynne, will not be part of the package. No exact numbers have been divulged in terms of how many of New Line’s staffers will remain, but the surviving entity will be a shell of its former self, refocusing on the horror, comedy and urban genre pics that helped put it on the map decades ago.

While many studio execs are cautiously optimistic that an actors’ walkout won’t happen, Hollywood majors are refusing to schedule new start dates on films that can’t complete shooting by June 30. That puts the onus on SAG leaders and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers to get down to bargaining so that the town can truly get back to work. The uncertainty has prompted Steven Spielberg to halt an April production start on the Aaron Sorkin-scripted DreamWorks drama “The Trial of the Chicago Seven.
