Russo Brothers Hire Mike Larocca as President of Production Company

A week after coming on to direct two Avengers movies for Disney/Marvel, Anthony and Joe Russo have hired veteran exec Mike Larocca as president of their Sony-based Getaway Prods.

Larocca had been senior VP at Chernin Entertainment and is an executive producer on Melissa McCarthy’s upcoming comedy “Spy.” He also worked on “The Drop,” starring James Gandolfini and Tom Hardy; “Rise of the Planet of the Apes,” starring James Franco and Andy Serkis; and the Tom Cruise sci-fier “Oblivion,” directed by Joseph Kosinski.

Prior to working at Chernin, Larocca was an executive at Spyglass Entertainment.
