History

The film studio was formed at the same time as the parent company Mandalay Entertainment in 1995 by Peter Guber, who was formerly head of Sony Pictures Entertainment and The Guber-Peters Company. At first, it struck an exclusive film and television deal with Sony Pictures Entertainment, who was releasing its films through the Columbia and TriStar distribution labels.[2][3]

In 1997, Ori Marmur, who was formerly an employee of the company, was promoted to production vice president.[4]

In 1998, it was moved over from Sony to Paramount Pictures.[5] At the same time, it struck a partnership with Lionsgate Entertainment to acquire the assets of the company.[6] The deal does not include the television division, which will remain with Sony Pictures Entertainment.[7]

In 2002, the deal was transferred from Paramount Pictures to Universal Pictures, and launched its international sales division.[8] In the November of the year, it was split itself from Lionsgate Entertainment.[9]

In 2004, Ori Marmur left Mandalay Pictures, and decided to join Original Film. Ironically Original Film is producing the I Know What You Did Last Summer movies for Mandalay Pictures.[10]

In 2007, it launched a division Mandalay Independent Pictures, and it was to focus on making independent pictures.[11] In 2010, it became Mandalay Vision.[12]
