Paramount Marketing Shake-Up: David Sameth Out, Marc Weinstock Tapped to Lead (Exclusive)

  • Variety
David Sameth has been pushed out as part of a marketing shake-up at Paramount Pictures, sources tell Variety. Marc Weinstock, the former president of Annapurna, is in negotiations to join the studio in an unspecified role that will likely include overseeing parts of the marketing team, but could include other responsibilities. No deal is in place.

Paramount could not be reached for comment.

Sameth joined the studio just over a year ago after a stint as executive VP and head of theatrical marketing for Disney Animation Studios and Pixar. Sources say Sameth had alienated some staffers with his management style and had disappointed Paramount chief Jim Gianopulos with his campaigns for the Mark Wahlberg comedy “Instant Family” and J.J. Abrams’ thriller “Overlord.”

Paramount’s upcoming releases include a remake of “Pet Sematary,” the Elton John biopic “Rocketman,” and “Gemini Man,” a thriller the teams director Ang Lee with Will Smith.
