Ferguson set at Horizon

She joins Landau on 20th Century Fox lot

Amid the black-tie events and hullabaloo surrounding “Titanic,” which he produced with James Cameron, Jon Landau has re-established his Blue Horizon production banner on the 20th Century Fox lot.

Landau has bolstered his ranks with the hiring of Brooks Ferguson as executive VP of production, a post in which she will oversee the banner’s development and production.

Blue Horizon struck an exclusive production deal with Fox in 1995, but the term of the deal was put on hold during production of “Titanic.” Landau has at least two years remaining on the agreement, and only recently dubbed the banner Blue Horizon.

Ferguson joins Landau from Randa Haines’ production company, where she worked as veep of production. During her tenure with Haines, she was involved in such projects as “Shut Up and Dance” for Mandalay Entertainment and development of the remake of “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.”

Before that, Ferguson worked with producer Denise DiNovi, where she was involved with development and production on “Little Women,” “Nightmare Before Christmas” and “Ed Wood.” She began her career at Creative Artists Agency, working on the desk of Richard Lovett.

In the aftermath of “Titanic,” Landau — who had served as Fox’s executive VP of physical production before becoming a producer three years ago — and Blue Horizon will focus on building a development slate. During his tenure as a studio exec, Landau oversaw the production of such films as “Die Hard 2,” “Mrs. Doubtfire,” “True Lies,” the first two “Home Alone” pics, “The Last of the Mohicans” and “Alien³.”
