Lucas Foster, president of production for Kirk D’Amico’s Myriad Pictures is exiting the company immediately to pursue other business interest at the end of his current contract, which expired this spring. As yet there are no plans to replace him.
Foster joined Myriad in 2001 and is producing “Man of Fire” for New Regency on location in Mexico. Exec, who developed a number of projects for Myriad will be credited as exec producer on some of these titles when they go into production.
Foster has worked for producers such as Frank Yablans, Scott Rudin, Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer and partnered with filmmaker Jan De Bont at the latter’s Fox-based shingle Blue Tulip Films.
He recently produced Dimension Films project “Equilibrium,” starring Christian Bale and Emily Watson.
Foster’s exit will mean a more hand-on production role for D’Amico in the U.S.
