Miramax CEO Mike Lang Out

Miramax CEO Mike Lang is leaving the movie studio, after a 14-month stint. A Miramax press release says Lang is resigning, and that the company doesn’t have a successor lined up. Lang took over the film company after private equity investors had purchased it from Disney, and helped it hammer out a series of distribution deals, particularly with digital outlets like Netflix and Hulu. (An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that Miramax and Amazon had signed a deal.)
