Mandalay’s Marmur at Original

Exec o'saw development, prod'n of pix

After nine years at Mandalay Pictures, exec VP Ori Marmur will be moving to Neal Moritz’s Sony-based Original Film shingle.

Marmur effectively replaces former exec VP of production Brad Luff, who left Original last summer for Morgan Creek Prods.

“It’s a big addition for us, and we’re happy to have Ori,” said Moritz from Australia, where he is filming Sony’s “Stealth.”

Of the leap, Marmur said: “I am proud of the work that I have done at Mandalay and will always be grateful to Peter (Guber). He has been both a mentor and a friend to me and was incredibly supportive. Leaving is never easy, but this was an opportunity I could not pass up.”

Marmur started at Paramount-based production-financing company Mandalay in 1995, when the company was founded. He served both as senior VP of production and exec VP.

At the shingle he has overseen the development and production of films including “Donnie Brasco” and “The Score.” He is currently overseeing “The Jacket,” starring Keira Knightley and Adrien Brody, and “Into the Blue,” with Jessica Alba.

Prior to joining Mandalay, Marmur worked at CAA with the late Jay Maloney, and before that at ICM, Columbia Pictures and InterTalent.
