Sony Co-Chair Pascal Latest Casualty In Hack
Amy Pascal, the co-chair of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Pictures Group, is the latest casualty of the devastating hack of Sony Pictures last year, and is stepping down from her position. Pascal had been under fire for both approving The Interview--which spawned the hack, blamed on North Korea, which devastated Sony Pictures internal IT systems--as well as leaked emails disparaging Angelina Jolie and President Obama. Pascal apparently will step down in May, with a four-year production deal with Sony.
