Stx Promotes John Friedberg To Head Of International Following David Kosse Departure

  • Deadline
Stx has promoted head of sales John Friedberg to head of international following the departure of David Kosse to Netflix.

Friedberg will serve as President of the international division after previously serving as President of International Sales since 2015. In his new role, he will oversee the international film strategy reporting to Stx Chief Operating Officer Thomas McGrath and he will be based out of the company’s London office, which will continue to serve as headquarters for international sales and marketing, as well as the UK theatrical distribution business.

What Liam Neeson’s Racial Comments Mean for His Upcoming Films and Future Job Prospects
As debate continues to rage over Liam Neeson’s racially-charged remarks, many in Hollywood are wondering anxiously what the fallout might mean for his upcoming films and the future of his career. Some observers even think the interview could permanently damage his career.

After he shared this week that, decades ago, a close friend revealed she was raped by a man of color and he considered committing violence against black men in revenge, Neeson attempted a quick rebound before the opening of his Lionsgate film “Cold Pursuit.” The explanation of his remarks weren’t enough to neutralize the impact, many felt, and social media users and industry players continued to call him a racist after he explained that he would have had the same reaction if his friend had said her rapist was a white man.

The Internet Wants Liam Neeson Removed From Men In Black International After Racist Remarks

By now, you’ve probably heard about the recent comments made by Liam Neeson in an interview with The Independent, which saw the star of Cold Pursuit and the upcoming Men in Black International admit to walking out into the streets armed with a cosh multiple times a few decades ago in the hope of getting into a conflict with a black person that would give him an opportunity to kill them.

Understandably, the claim has been the subject of heavy controversy and backlash, and for fans who were looking forward to the next Men in Black movie, it would be putting it lightly to say that the incident has soured the atmosphere. In the sci-fi reboot, Neeson is set to play High T, the head of Mib’s UK branch, but according to some Twitter users, the studio would do well remove the actor from the final cut, with

Angry Fans Want Liam Neeson Digitally Erased from Men In Black: International
Some angry fans are calling for Liam Neeson to be digitally edited out of Men In Black: International after revealing that he wanted to "kill a black bastard." The week did not start off very well for Neeson who sat down for an interview to promote his upcoming Cold Pursuit. When asked how he gets into character for all of the revenge movie that he does, Neeson told a story about a friend who had been raped and his quest for revenge, which involved him going into the "black area" of town, waiting for someone to come at him just so that he could kill them.

Liam Neeson has since tried to clarify his comments, but it only seemed like he was doubling down on them in another recent interview. As a result, Lionsgate shut down the red carpet event for Cold Pursuit. And now, social media is crying to

Battle of the Sams: Will Elliott or Rockwell make the Best Supporting Actor Oscar cut?

Battle of the Sams: Will Elliott or Rockwell make the Best Supporting Actor Oscar cut?
Sam is in? But which one? Now that the four televised precursors have spoken, four spots in the Best Supporting Actor Oscar race appear to be secure: Mahershala Ali (“Green Book”), Timothee Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”), Adam Driver (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Richard E. Grant (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) all scored Golden Globe, Critics’ Choice, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA nominations. The last spot has been split between two Sams: Elliott (“A Star Is Born”), who made Critics’ Choice and SAG, and Rockwell (“Vice”), who was shortlisted at the Globes and BAFTA. Assuming the other four are in, which Sam will take the final spot in the Oscar lineup?

Elliott has had a rocky Oscar journey for what many felt was a safe nomination after “A Star Is Born” opened to great reviews and became a box office hit. The Globe snub was surprising, but in hindsight, given how “A Star Is Born

The DGA Awards and Golden Globes have the same director lineup for the 1st time in 8 years
For the first time in eight years, the Directors Guild of America Awards and the Golden Globes have shortlisted the same five directors as the best of the year. Bradley Cooper (“A Star Is Born”), Alfonso Cuaron (“Roma”), Peter Farrelly (“Green Book”), Spike Lee (“BlacKkKlansman”) and Adam McKay (“Vice”) received DGA nominations on Tuesday, two days after Cuaron won the Best Director Globe from the same lineup.

The last time DGA and the Globes went 5-for-5 was for the class of 2010. David Fincher (“The Social Network”) won the Globe over Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan”), Tom Hooper (“The King’s Speech”), David O. Russell (“The Fighter”) and Christopher Nolan (“Inception”). But Hooper nabbed the DGA and then the Oscar; the academy only snubbed Nolan in favor of Joel and Ethan Coen (“True Grit”).
