New Variety News Blog to Step Out from Behind Paywall

Variety will allow a small leak through its paywall, launching a news blog Tuesday that will be visible free-of-charge, TheWrap.com‘s Sharon Waxman reported.

The blog will feature casting and deal news, mainly from film editor Josh Dickey, along with film reporters Justin Kroll and Jeff Sneider, according to TheWrap.com, which added that the trade newspaper’s Web site has been behind a paywall since December 2009.
