Miller Leaves ParamountPosted by T'Bonz - 09/10/13 at 11:10 am
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.
