Pathe gains Gannon in U.K.

At Fox Searchlight, was exec on 'Slums of Beverly Hills,' 'Woman on Top'

Matthew Gannon has joined Pathe Entertainment as its London-based head of development.

He will segue to his new position from his current post as director of production and development in Fox Searchlight’s Los Angeles office. His new appointment becomes effective Oct. 9.

While at Searchlight, Gannon was an exec on Tamara Jenkins’ “Slums of Beverly Hills” as well as the company’s upcoming “Woman on Top” from Fina Torres, Dein Perry’s “Bootmen” and Philip Kaufman’s “Quills.”

At Searchlight, Gannon has also worked with such filmmakers as the U.K.’s Christopher Nolan and Spain’s Fernando Leon.

Prior to Searchlight, Gannon worked with former Searchlight topper Lindsay Law at American Playhouse in New York on films such as “I Shot Andy Warhol,” “Angels and Insects” and “Palookaville.”

In addition, Pathe has appointed Susanna Wyatt as head of physical production. She was previously head of production for HAL/Miramax. Prior to that, she was the production accountant on films such as “The Full Monty,” “Mansfield Park” and “Mrs. Brown.”

Since receiving an Arts Council of England lottery franchise in 1997, Pathe has produced seven films, four of which have been released: “An Ideal Husband,” “Ratcatcher,” “The Darkest Light” and “Love’s Labour’s Lost.”

Upcoming releases include John Hay’s “There’s Only One Jimmy Grimble,” Metin Huseyin’s “It Was an Accident” and Michael Winterbottom’s “The Claim.”

Pathe is also planning to produce Terry Gilliam’s “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” Nick Hamm’s “The Hole” and Bill Britten’s “The Abduction Club.”
