He who laughs last dept.
Nearly a year ago, FBLA revealed that the Poseidon was doomed, according to Warner’s internal memos. Virtual Studios then-CEO, Benjamin Waisbren left that job, vowing “I’m continuing to be active in the film industry”
Yeah, well, unless your name is Shelley Winters, don’t hold your breath for that..
Today in our in-box, was an email from Waisbren:
I enjoyed reading this when you posted it, as it was witty (even though I was on the receiving end). And I, indeed, held my breath.
I attach our press release and the related Variety article with my compliments.
All the best,
Waisbren has been named prexy-CEO of Capital Entertainment, which is part of Continental Entertainment Group, a full-service film financing, sales and distribution company. Citi is funding the venture, and Colin Cotter is president/CEO of both the parent company and Continental Pictures, while also remaining a partner in Graham King’s Initial Entertainment Group.
