Paramount Pictures has decided to end it relationship with Tom Cruise and his production company Cruise/Wagner Productions. The reason for ending this 14 year relationship was all due to Tom’s behavior this past year, remember the couch jumping incident on Oprah or the whole psychiatry is a pseudo science statement on Today show.

Sumner Redstone, the boss behind the Viacom empire says Mission Impossible III was hurt because of these incidents.

As much as we like him personally, we thought it was wrong to renew his deal. His recent conduct has not been acceptable to Paramount.

Rebuttal from Paula Wagner:

That came out of nowhere. It seems erratic. Paramount needs to spend more time identifying its goals and what films it wants to make. This is Hollywood’s oldest film studio, with a legacy to uphold.

I Wonder what the real reason Paramount decide not to renew its deal with Cruise’s production company. Even with a poor showing for MI:3, it still gross over $393 million worldwide. That’s still a big chunk of change for any studio.
