DeVon Franklin is moving his Franklin Entertainment from Columbia Pictures to 20th Century Fox in a multi-year first-look deal.

Franklin’s credits include the faith-based “Miracles From Heaven,” which starred Jennifer Garner and Queen Latifah, and grossed more than $73 million at the worldwide box office on a $15 million budget.

Stacey Snider, chairman and CEO of 20th Century Fox Film, said, “We’re excited to welcome Devon Franklin into the Fox family. He has great taste and a real feel for inspirational stories. His films will provide a perfect complement to the great variety of films that Fox already produces.”

“I am deeply committed to producing inspirational content of faith that reaches audiences all around the world,” Franklin said. “This is why I’m so excited to join Stacey Snider, Emma Watts, and the Fox family. I am incredibly grateful for the support from such a legendary team for my vision of creating uplifting content for the masses.”

Franklin is listed on Variety’s latest 10 Producers to Watch list.

Prior to launching Franklin Entertainment, Franklin served as a senior VP of production at Columbia TriStar Pictures, making him one of the highest-ranking African-American executives at a Hollywood studio. He worked on “The Karate Kid,” “The Pursuit of Happyness,” and “Heaven Is for Real.”

His upcoming projects include Sony Animation’s “The Star,” reboots of “He-Man” and “Masters of the Universe,” and a remake of “Cooley High” for MGM.
