Sony Names an Insider as New Chairman of Its Movie Unit

Rothman, who was pushed out as chairman of Fox Filmed Entertainment in 2012, has recently been working to resuscitate Sony's semi-moribund TriStar label. He will take over for Amy Pascal, who was herself edged out this month after a difficult run for Sony at the box office and fallout from last year's online attack on the studio.

Sony also said that Michael Lynton, the Sony Pictures chairman and chief executive, had renewed his contract with the studio, but did not disclose the terms or duration of the deal.
