Disney Downsizes Miramax President

Daniel Battsek is leaving his post as president of Miramax after 18 years of working for Disney. Details from The Wrap:

“With the change in direction at Miramax, we have reached a mutual agreement with Daniel that he will leave his post as president, effective January 2010,” Rich Ross, newly appointed chairman of the Walt Disney Studios, said in a release Friday.

The news comes less than a month after Disney significantly downsized the division’s release schedule and folded much of its operations into the studio’s larger film group.
