Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures Go Separate Ways

Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Studio have officially announced they will not renew their picture-deal and will part ways. This comes as pretty big news considering that Legendary has some big movies released with Warner Bros. and has big tentpole movies in the future as well. I don't want to look at this as a bad thing necessarily, but a opportunity for Legendary to expand. 

Legendary Pictures founder Thomas Tull has a few interested parties to partner up with now. The top runners are Universal, Sony, and Fox. They are all great companies that make respectable films in Legendary's expertise. The most likely candidate is Universal. 

Universal has the most to offer for the big entertainment company. Legendary wants to move into other ventures including tv, comic books, and digital content. Universal has mega-network NBC and it's subsidiaries. This will for sure entice these guys to drink the kool aid. 

Before any deal is being made, Legendary will meet with Fox for a chit chat. Tull said he want's to choose the best company to "help fulfill the grand vision." So look at this as a oppunity to grow and see where these ventures will take us in theaters in coming years. Legendary has always drew me in.
