Sony Pictures Entertainment is considering creating a new division for films that are a step above the low-budget art films handled by Sony Pictures Classics but not quite the big blockbusters that its Columbia Motion Pictures unit turns out, Sony Motion Pictures Group Chairman Amy Pascal has told Britain's Guardian newspaper. In an interview appearing today (Friday), Pascal indicated that she conceived the idea of a new division after Brokeback Mountain, a film she rejected, became one of the biggest box-office successes of 2005. "At the time we didn't have the right way to distribute a movie like that ... I didn't believe Sony would be able to do it justice," she said.
