Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks dumps Disney


It is one of the most powerful partnerships in the film industry but Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios is set to end its distribution partnership with Disney.

The studio of the award-winning filmmaker currently distributes and markets its movies through The Walt Disney Company, but this will stop in August 2016.

According to Variety, DreamWorks is likely to do a deal with Universal instead.

Disney has distributed DreamWorks’ productions since 2009 and it’s thought Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘The BFG’ – which is set for release in July 2016 – will be the final film to be released under the deal.

Wonder if Banky’s ‘Dismaland’ had anything to do with it?
