Pam Abdy Stepping Down as New Regency Production Chief

30 September 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pam Abdy is stepping down as New Regency’s president of production, Variety has learned.

Brad Weston exits New Regency

2 May 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

The president and CEO is to depart the financer-producer on the back of the $500m-plus global success of triple Oscar-winner The Revenant, the company has confirmed.

Weston served in his role for four-and-a-half years and in that time steered other hits like best picture Oscar winners 12 Years A Slave and Birdman, and last season’s contender, The Big Short.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, which broke the story on Monday morning, Michan’s son Yariv Milchan, who has served as a consigliere to his father, will play a more hands-on role alongside president of production Pamela Abdy and COO Jonathan Fisher until a replacement is found.

Given that New Regency is enjoying a rich vein of form and the apparent sense of fondness in statements issued by Milchan and Weston on Monday, it would appear the arrangement was mutual and possibly had been in the works for a while.

Brad Weston Departs as CEO, President of New Regency

2 May 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Brad Weston is departing as president and CEO of New Regency after five years on the job, a decision the executive was said to have made jointly with the company’s founder, Arnon Milchan.

New Regency had a winning creative run during Weston’s tenure, taking best picture Oscars for “12 Years A Slave” and “Birdman” and multiple awards for last year’s “The Revenant.”

The company said it would be in strong hands going forward, led by Milchan’s son, Yariv, and by chief operating officer Jonathan Fischer and president of production Pam Abdy. A new management structure has not been set.

“I appreciate Brad’s contribution to New Regency over the last four and half years and I wish him absolutely nothing but the best going forward,” Milchan said in a statement. “I am very committed to New Regency’s growth and will continue to invest in its future. »

'Assassin's Creed' Photo Has Michael Fassbender Locked in a Cell

19 March 2016 1:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Assassin's Creed is going to be one of this Christmas' biggest releases. And it will be the second big video game adaptation coming this year following this summer's Warcraft. Ubisoft has released a new photo from Assassin's Creed. It features Michael Fassbender as his modern-day character Callum Lynch hunched in a cell, vigorously working on something. What? We do not know.

Michael Fassbender plays dual roles in Assassin's Creed. Lynch will relive the genetic memories of a 15th century Spanish Assassin named Aguilar, experiencing his adventures.

'Assassin's Creed 2' Already Happening, Michael Fassbender Will Return

5 March 2016 8:31 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

You can stop worrying about that Assassin's Creed movie, at least for the moment. Apparently producers are so happy with it, they are wasting no time in moving forward on Assassin's Creed 2. And Michael Fassbender will return as Callum Lynch, the descendant of a mysterious secret society of Assassins, who must use his deadly skills to battle the powerful Templar organization.

Producers feel they have a massive hit on their hands, though that can only truly be confirmed by the ticket buying audience. Assassin's Creed arrives in a very crowed Christmas market this December, opening just one week after Lucasfilm's first spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Collateral Beauty starring Will Smith. It will debut in theaters the same day as the big sci-fi epic Passengers starring Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. As well as the animated family comedy Sing, which follows a group of animals in a singing competition. »
