MGM redo of marketing draws Curtin

Terry Curtin was named chief of publicity and field promotions for MGM/UA Thursday in the final move of a marketing restructuring under recently hired exec veep Gerry Rich.

Curtin, who was veep of worldwide publicity and promotion for Morgan Creek, will report directly to Rich, who has been building a marketing team since he was hired as marketing chief in December.

“Terry will be a wonderful complement to the senior management team, which is already in place,” Rich said in a statement.

Curtin, whose was known as Terry Clifford before she married, will oversee all publicity and field promotional activities for the lion studio’s distrib company. She replaces senior veep of worldwide publicity Ronni Chasen, who announced her departure earlier this month.

She will begin work on MGM/UA’s summer slate of pix, led by the Macaulay Culkin starrer “Getting Even with Dad” and “Blown Away,” starring Tommy Lee Jones and Jeff Bridges. Curtin will also handle Michael Moore’s feature helming debut “Canadian Bacon,” which stars Alan Alda, Rhea Perlman and the late John Candy.

Before Morgan Creek, Curtin spent nine years at 20th Century Fox, last serving as a veep of national publicity.

She oversaw publicity campaigns for such pix as “True Romance,””Ace Ventura: Pet Detective,””Alien3,””My Cousin Vinny,””White Men Can’t Jump,””Grand Canyon, “”The Commitments,””Home Alone,””Die Hard 2” and the upcoming “Major League II.”
