Sony Pictures' longtime theatrical distribution chief Rory Bruer is retiring after four decades with the studio, the company told staff Thursday. Bruer, 63, who first joined the studio in 1977 with a job in the mailroom, will transition to an advisory role at the studio at the end of this year. He has served as president of worldwide distribution since 2008, and has long enjoyed deep connections with movie theater chains. He will not be directly replaced, Sony said. Instead, Adrian Smith, domestic distribution head, and Steven O'Dell, president of international distribution, will continue to oversee their divisions, reporting to worldwide marketing and distribution chief Josh Greenstein.
