Kevin McCormick Stepping Down As Warner Bros Production President On Jan 1

warnerbroslogo-200
Kevin McCormick, who has served as President, Production, Warner Bros. Pictures, since January 2008, will return to his roots as a film producer and form a Studio-based production company effective January 1, 2010, it was announced today by Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros. Pictures Group.

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.
