Kennedy/Marshall taps Grey Rembert

Veteran exec named president of production

Veteran exec Grey Rembert has joined the newly reorganized Kennedy/Marshall Company as prexy of production.

Rembert will report to founder Frank Marshall, who serves as the sole head of the company now that Kathleen Kennedy has departed to serve as co-chair of Lucasfilm.

Rembert is a longtime colleague of Kennedy and Marshall who got her start in the business 25 years ago when the duo hired her to work at Amblin Entertainment fresh out of college.

“I couldn’t be more excited to have Grey joining me at Kennedy/Marshall,” said Marshall. “She is a talented, seasoned professional and it is a pleasure to be reunited since she began her career working for me and Kathy at Amblin.”

“I’m excited by this opportunity to work with longtime friends and family. Kathy and Frank inspired me to work in the movie business and gave me the best training ground at Amblin Entertainment. Working alongside Frank is a dream come true… it just doesn’t get better than this,” added Rembert.

Announcement comes at a busy time for the company, which has “The Bourne Legacy” opening Friday and Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” opening in November. It is currently developing the fourth installment of the boffo “Jurassic Park” franchise.

The Kennedy/Marshall Company, which has a longstanding first-look film deal with DreamWorks, recently announced a two-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios, and also has plans to expand into documentaries and digital media.

Rembert most recently served as senior VP of development at GK Films, where over the course of six years, she championed such projects as “Hugo” and was involved with both “The Town” and “The Tourist.” Prior to GK, Rembert was an exec at DreamWorks, where she specialized in acquiring literary material for feature film development.
