Ori Marmur, the exec who oversaw production on the current Al Pacino-Johnny Depp mobster pic “Donnie Brasco,” has been boosted to VP of production at Mandalay Entertainment, the company announced Monday.
Marmur is now overseeing “Seven Years in Tibet,” the Brad Pitt starrer helmed by Jean-Jacques Annaud and set in the Andes mountain range.
He has been with Peter Guber’s Mandalay since its inception two years ago in the posts of creative exec and a director of development.
Before joining Guber, Marmur was an assistant to former CAA agent Jay Moloney. Before that, he was an intern with InterTalent Agency, and held jobs at ICM and Columbia Pictures.
“Ori has been a vital part of Mandalay’s growth,” said Todd Black, prexy of production. “And, as the company continues to serve as one of the key sources of product for Sony Pictures Entertainment, he will become an even more important player.”
Mandalay has three major releases due out from Sony Distribution: “Double Team,” starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and basketballer Dennis Rodman; “Desperate Measures,” directed by Barbet Schroeder with Michael Keaton and Andy Garcia; and the Pitt pic.
