NBCUniversal to Open Film Office in Beijing

Looking for more co-productions


NBCUniversal vice chairman Ron Meyer said on Monday that the studio is planning to open a film office in Beijing, a "base of operations' as Universal pursues more co-productions in the country.

"Co-productions are important and for us, the opportunities are going to, hopefully, be many," Meyer said after an event at Universal to kickoff a screening series of international China co-productions. He said that they are in the process of formulating more details and do not have a set time for when the office will be open. Universal's "Despicable Me 2? is scheduled to open in China in early 2014, Meyer said.
