agency-chair-bigMGM has re-hired Justin Slobig, previously an executive on the marketing team, as the studio’s new senior VP of theatrical marketing. Slobig, during his first tour of duty at MGM, was on the team handling the marketing of Die Another Day and other Bond films as well as other franchises there.

The newly launched CBS Films has selected MPG as its agency of record, handling all media planning and buying responsibilities for the studio’s expected four to six films a year output. Parent CBS had earlier consolidates duties at OMD but that agency handles Universal Pictures and that would have just been awkward, if not an outright conflict.
