Former Inferno international prexy joins Annapurna founder

Kimberly Fox, prexy of international sales at Inferno Entertainment, is leaving to create a new foreign sales company with Megan Ellison of Annapurna Pictures, Variety has learned.

Details are still coming together, but Ellison has been rapidly raising her profile in Hollywood as Annapurna continues to grow. The production company is behind three of 2012’s highest-profile releases, including Paul Thomas Anderson’s religious drama “The Master,” Andrew Dominik’s Brad Pitt-starrer “Killing Them Softly” and John Hillcoat’s bootlegging pic “Wettest County,” which stars Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy and Jessica Chastain.

Fox previously served as head of international sales at Bill Block’s financing-producing outfit QED, where she handled “The Hunting Party,” “The Lucky Ones” and “Smart People”, as well as outside projects such as “The Girl in the Park” and “Powder Blue.”
