‘American Hustle’ Producer Jonathan Gordon Heading Production for Megan Ellison’s Annapurna

Megan Ellison has selected producer Jonathan Gordon as president of production for her Annapurna Pictures.

He will oversee the development and production of Annapurna projects, and will report to Ellison.

Gordon produced David O. Russell’s “American Hustle” with Ellison, Charles Roven and Richard Suckle and “Silver Linings Playbook” with Bruce Cohen and Donna Gigliotti. “Hustle” received 10 Oscar nominations, including best picture.

Gordon also worked with Russell on “Flirting with Disaster.”

Prior to becoming a producer, Gordon was president of production at Universal Pictures under Stacey Snider and previously spent 15 years with Harvey and Bob Weinstein at Miramax Films, where his last position was co-president of production.

While at Miramax, Gordon oversaw “Good Will Hunting,” “Dogma” and George Clooney’s directorial debut “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.”

Annapurna recently announced that it had funded Page 1, a movie-TV development and production company from “Zero Dark Thirty” writer-producer Mark Boal.
