Courtenay Valenti Named Warner Bros. Production President (EXCLUSIVE)

Courtenay Valenti will be named president of production at Warner Bros., Variety has learned.

The hire comes as newly installed Warner Bros. Pictures President Toby Emmerich is assembling his team. Emmerich also recently tapped Kevin McCormick to join the studio as executive vice president of production.

Valenti is a longtime Warner Bros. executive, having been with the studio for nearly three decades. She currently serves as executive vice president of development and production.

A deal has yet to be formally announced, but multiple sources say the promotion is imminent. McCormick’s deal also hasn’t been made official.

Valenti has deep entertainment industry ties and is the daughter of the late MPAA president Jack Valenti. At Warner Bros., Valenti was intimately involved in the Harry Potter franchise, including the recent “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.” She also helped guide studio’s animation offerings, with a particular focus on its Lego movies.

McCormick previously served as production president at the studio. He left in 2010 to start his own company,  Langley Park, and produced 2013’s “Gangster Squad” and the 2011 remake of “Arthur.”  He will report to Valenti.

A spokesman for Warner Bros. declined to comment.
