Universal has announced that the subdivision, Focus Features, will be absorbing FilmDistrict. The reasoning behind the move is FilmDistrict CEO, Peter Schlessel, taking over for Focus Features. This will give Focus the opportunity to release a wide variety of films and increase them to at least 10 films per year. All FilmDistrict films released after January 2014 will be released as Focus Features.
This year Focus only had four releases this year (Admission, The World's End, Closed Circuit, and The Place Beyond the Pines), and they are looking forward to absorbing the specialty projects FilmDistrict has enjoyed such as Insidious, Evil Dead, and Drive.
