Oz’s Icon breaks off from WB

New unit to help co. with new technology, market needs

Icon Australia is ending its home entertainment distribution deal with WB to set up its own home entertainment division, run by Greg Hughes, with Greg Denning as topper of theatrical distribution.

Former Oz topper Mark Gooder, who relocates to the company’s Los Angeles headquarters this month, said the division will allow Icon to adapt more effectively to the changing needs of the market as new technologies and platforms gain consumer acceptance.

WB will continue to rep the existing Icon library, which includes Icon co-topper Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ.” The rights to the library will revert to Icon title by title over the coming years.
