Kevin McCormick Stepping Down As Warner Bros Production President On Jan 1
McCormick will remain in his executive role at the Studio until the end of December 2009.
McCormick’s post at Warner Bros. Pictures will not be filled; Robinov will assume some of the position’s responsibilities and re-assign the balance of the job’s duties to in-place executives in January 2010.
Among the first films to be produced by McCormick’s production company are “Dead Spy Running,” adapted by Stephen Gaghan; “The Lucky One,” to be directed by Doug McGrath and produced by Denise Di Novi; “Arthur” with producers Larry Bresner and Chris Bender; and an untitled project with writer Eric Roth.
“When we first discussed my becoming President of Production, I told Jeff that I would make a commitment for two years – because I realized it would lead me away from the creative side of filmmaking, which is what I most care about,” said McCormick.
