^MGM is making Robocop, whereas Fox is behind Die Hard (and Fox interference also had an effect on X-Men 3 and Wolverine), but yeah, sounds like much the same situation.
Yeah, they might be different companies, but the mindset is basically the same. But it depends on the situation, I guess. Paramount interfered heavily with Rick Berman's ideas about Star Trek, but it seems they let JJ Abrams do what he wants. I guess success makes you more independent from studio dictate.
