Rehme to head movie academy


Producer Robert Rehme, a Hollywood veteran, has been named the new president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences -- the group that runs the Oscars every March. He replaces Karl Malden, who led the 5,000-member organization for the last three years.

"I don't envision any major projects in the next year," says Mr. Rehme.

Co-producer of "Patriot Games," from Paramount, Mr. Rehme has been a board member for eight years.
