Mark A. Curcio, co-chief exec officer for Artisan Entertainment, has stepped down from his post following a power struggle with newly named sole CEO Amir Malin.
Malin and Curcio had shared the CEO position for Artisan ever since Malin was named co-CEO last April.
Malin will now take sole control over the company and its future growth. Bill Block remains prexy of the company and will take on additional responsibilities related to the company’s Internet initiatives.
Artisan, which was started three years ago, came on strong last year with the $136 million box office perf of “Blair Witch Project.”
