Breaking: Not that anybody thought he was leaving, but Lionsgate has announced a contract extension for Jason Constantine to continue as President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions at the studio’s Motion Picture Group. Constantine continues to play key roles in the studio’s projects and he steers the acquisitions team. The 13-year Lionsgate veteran has helped with recent acquisitions including the Expendables franchise, Cabin In The Woods, Arbitrage and the upcoming Joss Whedon pic Much Ado About Nothing, Girl Most Likely starring Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening, and the Gwyneth Paltrow-Mark Ruffalo starrer Thanks For Sharing. What became clear to me while covering the Sundance Film Festival is how pivotal Constantine has been in working with Roadside Attractions accomplices Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff to make multi-platform releasing an eminently viable alternative for films that might not otherwise cut it as theatrical releases that need big P&A spends. »
