Hunter, who joins Sony from a similar role at Twentieth Century Fox, will oversee theatrical casting strategy across the studio’s various labels, a group that includes Columbia, Affirm, Screen Gems, Sony Pictures Animation and TriStar Pictures. She will report directly to Doug Belgrad, president of the SPE Motion Picture Group, and will start on Monday.

Upcoming projects that Hunter worked on at Fox include the superhero sequel “X-Men: Apocalypse”; “Wilson,” a comedy about a divorced man starring Woody Harrelson; “Why Him?,” a Bryan Cranston and James Franco comedy about a dad’s rivalry with his daughter’s boyfriend; and “Hidden Figures,” an adaptation of a Margot Lee Shetterly novel about a group of African-American numbers crunchers who work with NASA.

Prior to Fox, Hunter worked in independent casting on numerous high-profile television and feature film projects. Her credits include “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Agent Carter,” “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD,” “Chef,” “The Jungle Book” and “Safe House.”
