Exec comes to studio from Scott Stuber's Bluegrass Films

Universal Pictures has tapped Jon Mone as exec VP of production.

In addition to Mone, Universal recently promoted Maradith Frenkel and Anikah McLaren to vice presidents of production, and Chloe Yellin has been promoted to creative executive.

Mone comes to Universal from Scott Stuber’s Bluegrass Films banner. He reports to Peter Cramer and Jeffrey Kirschenbaum, U’s co-presidents of production.

“Jon’s on-set experience, great filmmaker and talent relationships, and strong creative point of view will augment our strong production team and we have no doubt that he will hit the ground running and be a major contributor to building our slate,” said Kirschenbaum.

Mone most recently exec produced Universal’s “Ted” which has since grossed more than $400 million worldwide. Mone along with Stuber played an important role in picking up the Seth MacFarlane pic from Media Rights Capital.

Mone was also a production executive for Universal and Bluegrass Films’ 2008 comedy Role Models, starring Seann William Scott and Paul Rudd. Prior to joining Bluegrass, Mone was an associate producer on Disney’s 2004 film Miracle, starring Kurt Russell, and 2006’s Invincible, starring Wahlberg.

“Jon has been a trusted and valued member of our team for several years and keeping him in our Universal family is the best of both worlds for everyone,” said Stuber. “We wish him all the best in his new role at the studio.”
