Ana Amigo has resigned as head of Warner Bros.’ local production operation in Spain.
Sources attribute her ankling to frustration at the laboriousness of the decision-making process within the studio system.
A veteran Spanish indie producer, who worked at Sogecine (“Open Your Eyes,” “She’s Mine”) and distributor Sogepaq (“Secrets of the Heart, “Thesis,” “Central Station”), Amigo launched WB’s production op in January 2003.
With Amigo in Spain, Warner Bros. ploughed into upscale pic production, aiding in the development of the upcoming “Remake,” from Roger Gual, and Antonio Hernandez’s psychological thriller “Oculto,” both of which WB will distribute.
It produced Manolo Gomez Pereira’s gay wedding comedy “Queens,” which underperformed in Spain, and took an associate producer’s credit on Benito Zambrano’s “Habana Blues,” a critical and B.O. hit in Spain, which closes Un Certain Regard.
