The IMDB Studio Briefing indicates that the day Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone fired CEO Tom Freston, DreamWorks cofounder David Geffen called Redstone to recommend fellow cofounder Jeffrey Katzenberg as Freston’s replacement. In addition, Geffen also suggested that Viacom buy DreamWorks Animation. While confirming that most of the conversation did indeed take place, Redstone insists that his company is not interested in purchasing DreamWorks Animation at this time.
