Warner Bros. Ups Courtney Armstrong to Exec VP, Worldwide Business Affairs

Veteran Warner Bros. exec Courtney D. Armstrong has been promoted to exec VP of worldwide business affairs.

Armstrong has worked at the studio since 2003 and been involved with the “Dark Knight” trilogy, “The Departed,” “Man of Steel” (along with the upcoming “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice”) and “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

He will oversee all day-to-day business and legal aspects of worldwide film acquisition, production and distribution, including supervising the negotiations of key deals with filmmakers and talent.

Armstrong will report to Steven Spira, president of worldwide business affairs, and exec VP Patti Connolly, who will be retiring this fall after 29 years at the studio.

Before joining Warner Bros., Armstrong spent three years at Walt Disney Pictures as an attorney in the business and legal affairs department of the motion picture group. He began his career as a litigation associate on the entertainment team at Los Angeles-based law firm Paul Hastings LLP.
