Miller Leaves Paramount



Brian Miller, SVP of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships and Consumer Products for Paramount, will be leaving at the end of the year.

Miller was the producer of the unsuccessful Star Trek video game, which released earlier this year.

The game was panned last month by J.J. Abrams, who initially had high hopes for the it. “To me the video game could have been something that actually really benefited the series and was an exciting, fun game with great gameplay,” he said.

“[It] was something that I think, for me emotionally it hurt,” said Abrams, “because we were working our asses off making the movie and then this game came out and it got, this isn’t even my opinion, it got universally panned.”

The official reason for Miller’s departure is a desire to pursue personal products after fourteen years at Paramount, but it’s believed that the real reason was that Paramount wanted him gone.

    In another bit of news Joe Michalczuk tweeted that Bob Orci told him talks have started back up with CBS about bringing Star trek back to TV.

    If this is the guy responsible for the retailer exclusives for the Into Darkness DVD/BD release, then glad to hear he is gone.

    T’Bonz – my god, can we please get rid of that smirking, ugly-ass, dweebish photo of Abrams and use something less… putrid? There have been several mentions about the photo – it’s not just me. I mean, how badly must you hate JJ Abrams to keep using that same piece of vomitry? I don’t much like Abrams, but I wouldn’t keep doing THAT to him. Use a photo that actually makes me WANT to read the article instead of making me double over with intense abdominal pain.

    One less moron at Paramount! I’m not sure how many other Executives responsible for JJ-Trek are still there, but I hope they all leave!

  • Mike

    Indeed, I think I commented on it a couple months ago… It makes me want to punch JJ in the mouth when I see him with that smug look on his face…. so, yeah…

  • TBonzie

    LOL, I don’t hate Abrams. I rather like him (as much as I can like a stranger, you know?)

    I’ll dig around for a better photo.

    Lets hope this happens 🙂

  • trekfan

    Lol, yeah. And there should be ‘schmuck’ written on his forehead.

    One more less person for JJ to blame for his not-as-much-more-success-as-he-thinks-he-could-have-had-if.
