Producer takes slot vacated by Iwanyk
When the negotiations are finalized, Kroopf is expected to take over the post left vacant by Basil Iwanyk. He exited Intermedia last year to take a producing deal and return to Warner Bros. Pictures, where he was once an exec.
Kroopf was an inhouse producer at Radar, along with Erica Huggins and former CAA agent Joe Rosenberg.
“It was an amicable departure and we wish him all the best in his new creative endeavors,” said Radar CEO Ted Field.
Recent Kroopf credits include “The Last Samurai” and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” At Interscope Communications, Field’s Radar predecessor, Kroopf also produced films such as “Runaway Bride” and “Jumanji.”
Kroopf will report to Intermedia chairman Moritz Borman.
Kroopf is currently finishing post-production on “The Chronicles of Riddick” for Universal, which stars Vin Diesel. He is also producing “The Mask” sequel, “The Mask is Back,” for New Line Cinema and is attached as an exec producer on “Amityville Horror” for Miramax’s Dimension Films.
