Fox names Saralegui production veepee

Jorge Saralegui has been upped to veepee of production for 20th Century Fox, reporting directly to Tom Jacobson, Fox prexy of worldwide production.

Saralegui is overseeing production of Fox’s action-adventure “Speed,” directed by Jan DeBont and starring Keanu Reeves, Sandra Bullock and Dennis Hopper.

“Having brought ‘Speed’ to the studio, Jorge has amply proved his talents in the creative arena,” Jacobson said in a prepared release.

Saralegui projects at Fox including “Unknown Soldier” by Scott Abbott and an adventure movie based on “Ripley’s Believe It or Not.”

Saralegui began at Fox in 1989 as a story analyst. He was promoted in 1991 to creative executive and to director of production a year later. He also worked as a reader for Universal Pictures and the Indieprod Co.
