EXCLUSIVE: Warner Bros. Production Exec Lynn Harris Leaving

Lynn Harris, Executive Vice President of Production at Warner Bros, is leaving the studio after more than a decade in that role.

Harris, 47, will continue to consult on a few of the studio’s forthcoming projects that she helped develop, including “Godzilla,” the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore comedy “Blended” and the Wachowski sibling action/adventure picture”Jupiter Ascending.”

Reports have surfaced that Harris has had conflicts with Greg Silverman, President, Creative Development and Worldwide Production. Harris was also close to Jeff Robinov, the former studio topper, and that changes made after his departure have caused some tension.

“We, of course, support her decision to seek new challenges, and I personally know she will be as successful in her future endeavors as she has been during her tenure here at Warner Bros.,” Silverman wrote in a note to Warner Bros. staff.

Harris joined Warner Bros. in 2004 in her current role. She developed and oversaw production of “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “V For Vendetta,” “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close,” “Magic Mike” and “Man of Steel,” among  others. She was a champion of Alfonso Cuaron’s Oscar nominated picture “Gravity. “

Prior to joining Warner Bros., Lynn served as Executive Vice President, Production at New Line Cinema where she oversaw and executive produced such films as “Seven” “Boogie Nights” and “Life as a House.”

She also was an executive producer of  “About a Boy” for Universal.

Harris began her career in television working for Leonard Hill Films before moving to Fox Broadcasting and then becoming vice president of Lynda Obst Productions.

She graduated from the University of California at Berkeley in 1988.
