Peter Possne, CEO of Swedish production and distribution company Sonet Film, is ankling to try something new.

He will be replaced by vice CEO Matthias Berggren, who will take over Jan. 1.

Possne was mysterious about what his new venture will be. “I can’t say yet what it is about, only that it concerns media, including film,” he told Daily Variety.
