A Call to Boycott Warner Brothers

excerpt from:

WIMN's Voices: A Group Blog on Women, Media, AND… » Blog Archive » Boycott Warner Brothers: WB production president decrees no movies with female leads

by Nikki Finke

This comes to me from three different producers, so I know it's real: Warner Bros president of production Jeff Robinov has made a new decree that "We are no longer doing movies with women in the lead." This Neanderthal thinking comes after both Jodie Foster's The Brave One (even though she's had big recent hits with Flightplan and Panic Room) and Nicole Kidman's The Invasion (as if three different directors didn't have something to do with the awfulness of the gross receipts) under-performed at the box office recently.
