Kink in Barrandov deal

Missed meeting conjures questions

PRAGUE — Majority shareholder Moravia Steel was a no-show at Wednesday’s Barrandov shareholders’ meeting to discuss the rumored sale of the studio.

Vaclav Marhoul, former Barrandov CEO and still owner of 20% of Barrandov, told Daily Variety eight of the nine other shareholders waited for an hour with no notice or explanation from Moravia Steel.

Speculation is that the supposed “done deal” with Credit Suisse (which is presumed to be acting on behalf of Czech production company Lumar Films) may not be all that done. Another meeting must be held in two weeks’ time.
