Fox adds trio of production execs

Ireland, Jones and Reyes will report to Emma Watts

Twentieth Century Fox has added three production executives to its ranks, as former Appian Way exec Michael Ireland has joined the studio as VP of production, with Ryan Jones and Gina Reyes tapped as creative execs. Trio will report to production prexy Emma Watts.

“Michael brings a wealth of relationships and experience working with A level talent and will be a great addition to our team. Ryan and Gina are hard-working young executives with tremendous energy whom we’re excited to welcome to TCF,” Watts told Variety.

Ireland comes to Fox from Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way, where he was closely involved in the development of such films as “The Devil in the White City” and potential franchises “Twilight Zone,” “Akira” and “Harker.” He most recently served as a producer on Scott Cooper’s “Out of the Furnace,” a Relativity Media pic starring Christian Bale and Casey Affleck.

Prior to working at Appian Way, Ireland was an executive at MTV.

Jones joins Fox after serving as director of development at Morgan Creek, where he worked on upcoming pics “Tupac,” “Gregory Burns” and “Step Dawg.” He began his career at Handprint Entertainment.

Reyes, who has held posts at ICM and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” gained the bulk of her development and production experience while working for Salma Hayek’s production company Ventanazul.
