Granger set as UA prod'n head

26 April 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Former C/W Prods. executive Don Granger has been named president of production at United Artists.

In his post, he will oversee development and production operations at the recently revived UA, which is co-owned by Tom Cruise, Paula Wagner and MGM. Granger, who has been working with Wagner and Cruise at the storied studio since its rebirth in November, will report to Wagner, UA's CEO.

"What I love about Tom and Paula is their enthusiasm for filmmakers, for stories that they believe will make compelling movies," said Granger, who is overseeing production of the studio's first two films, Robert Redford's Lions for Lambs and Bryan Singer's Valkyrie. "Decisions are not being made from a profit/loss ratio perspective."

During his 12-year stint at C/W Prods., he shepherded War of the Worlds, Mission: Impossible III, Elizabethtown and the upcoming The Eye. Granger also was a producer on the Paramount Classics film Ask the Dust.

Wagner lauded Granger for "his great filmmaker relationships, his terrific taste in material and the tremendous intelligence he brings to development and production." She added, "He's been an integral part of our team for many years now, and we are delighted that our association is continuing at UA."

Before C/W Prods., Granger was an executive at Paramount Pictures, where he supervised the Mission: Impossible, Star Trek and Tomb Raider franchises. »

I was in love from the moment that I shook his hand for the first time." The 28-year-old, who is stepmother to the Mission: Impossible star's other children Connor and Isabella, claims she loves her new life. She adds, "I have a husband and children that I adore. I have a career that I really love. When I sit back and reflect, it's - wow! I am very grateful. Tom makes me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world and has since the day I met him. I love being with him. I love calling him my husband." »
