On Friday, Disney movie studio boss Rich Ross stepped down, AP reported.
His resignation comes after a two-year-row over high-budgeted bombs for Disney. Last year it was "Mars Needs Moms," which lost $70 million. This year, it was "John Carter," a sci-fi action movie set on Mars that resulted in a $200 million loss for Disney.
Ross, 50, said in a memo to staff that he no longer believed his role as chairman of Walt Disney Studios was "the right professional fit."
Ross's resignation is effective immediately. Disney did not name a successor.
