Tom Rothman Speaks Out On Plans for Sony

The new head of Sony has a lot of work to do.

Tom Rothman

We all remember last year’s scandal over the “Great Sony Hack of 2014. The leaked information led to the departure of Sony Picture’s CEO and her replacement with Tom Rothman. Now Rothman is speaking out on his plans for the future.

In an interview as part of a cover story with Variety, Rothman said that he plans get Sony Pictures going again. He has already brought some of his compatriots over to Sony from his former employer Fox Studios.

On recovering from the scandal, Rothman said of Sony, “We have more than survived. We have thrived.”

But what does Sony have to offer audiences other than the dying Spiderman franchise. Its deal with MGM to co-market the Bod movies is also ending with the next film in the series, Spectre.

“The reality is that Sony’s had a fantastic run with the Bonds, ” said Rothman, adding, “Sure we’re going to compete for, but let’s be honest, so is everybody in the business.”

So what’s up next for Sony? Good question.

It lost a potential fortune at the box office when it blinked last December and pulled “The Interview” from theaters at the last minute. That move cost it and theaters millions.
