The Heather Parry Rights
During her time with MTV, Heather Parry successful obtained the rights to the “Twilight” franchise. Sadly, Viacom, MTV’s parent company didn’t see its potential and sold those rights to Summit Entertainment who would go on to make billions through the franchise. In 2005 she left MTV and became head of Adam Sandler’s company Happy Madison Products. She was here for a little over ten years. In late 2015 she began and become head of Live Nations which focused on music-related documentaries, movies, and TV shows.
Today it owns more than 100 music festivals around the country which it uses to promote its projects. They did this via lots of posters and running trailers all over the place. LN’s most recent film to get this treatment was “A Star is Born” which has proved extremely well received by both critics and audiences alike. This film which stars Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga is a remake of the 1976 movie of the same name starring Kris Kristofferson and Barbara Streisand. The story features Ally, a rising star growing in popularity, and Jackson, an aging star who is slowly becoming a has-been.
On January 22 it was announced that it had been nominated for 8 Oscars including Best Picture, Best Actor (Cooper), Best Actress (Gaga), Supporting Actor (Sam Elliot), Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Original Song, and Best Sound Mixing. At this year’s Golden Globes its song “Shallow” won for Best Original Song in a Motion Picture. (This is the same song up for the same category for the Oscar’s). Live Nation also runs Maverick Management which helps them plan and run all of their projects.
