Sony Digital Vet Departs

13 Mar, 2008 By: Erik Gruenwedel

Yair Landau, president of Sony Pictures Entertainment's digital division, is leaving the studio in April after 17 years to start a video game and animation venture.

Landau, who helped create Sony's digital animation and effects business, reportedly secured the rights to Marvel Comics' Spider-Man, which became one of the studio's most lucrative film franchises, generating more than $900 million in revenue.

Separately, Sony Computer Entertainment will oversee operations of Sony Online Entertainment in an effort to maximize online content development for the PlayStation 3 system.
