the quote is from "One insider familiar with Annapurna’s operations" who remains unnamed. it's a spin article.

Quote
Two of Barnard’s top projects have fallen apart, Variety reported on Tuesday prior to her exit. One was a high-profile telling of Roger Ailes’ Fox News implosion starring Nicole Kidman and Charlize Theron. The other was the Jennifer Lopez drama “The Hustlers at Scores,” about exotic dancers who turn the tables on their Wall Street clients after the economy tanks.
variety

to spin it another way, i don't think were was a mutual agreement with the president about how to use money. it's not PTA fan crazy to say that within the reevaluation period he'll be deemed of value. he's already Tiffany Haddishing it, and though Adam Sandler didn't bring the bank you know i mean he's doing something, and he's def got clout

As Annapurna Stumbles, Billionaire Larry Ellison Exerts Control

it's more of the same. key parts:

Quote
But sources say Ellison is continuing to invest in Annapurna and has no current plans to shutter the operation, according to sources.

Quote
The studio also put the brakes on the comedy “Guilty,” even as Kevin Hart was attaching himself from a script by Jerrod Carmichael, with budget concerns again the reason the project was put on the back burner. An Annapurna insider disputed money concerns, instead citing script issues.

Quote
While several people said Megan Ellison, considered a mercurial figure, has been missing in action this week as chatter grows louder that the studio was in the midst of a financial crisis, another company insider insists that she has been stabilizing the film unit, speaking with filmmakers and visible in the office.

Quote
Annapurna is expected to enact layoffs as part of this reorganization. However, the studio is also going to make certain strategic hires as it tries to piece together a more profitable slate.

None of us really know the details about what is going on, but this could definitely hit PTA's next film. Especially with Vice coming out soon and that needing to make a decent haul. There's always more fallout to these things. That being said, a likely project starring Tiffany Haddish will get picked up by some studio. The possible 1930s LA backdrop may make it more expensive though.
