Fox ups ‘X3’ exec

Young promoted to veep position

Fox’s “X-Men: The Last Stand” supervising executive Alex Young has been upped to exec VP.

Young, who had been vice president, supervised “Fantastic Four” and is presiding over its sequel. He’s also mobilizing sequels to “Alien vs. Predator” and “Die Hard,” as well as the Robert Schwentke-directed “Runaway Train” and a feature version of “The A-Team.”

Young, who oversaw “X2,” also is supervising development of “Wolverine,” the David Benioff-scripted “X-Men” spinoff that will star Hugh Jackman.

“Alex is a crucial player at this studio and his track record speaks for itself,” said 20th Century Fox production president Hutch Parker. “He has a great instinct for tentpole properties and excels in their development as well as when they are in production.”

Young, who’s spent the past four years at Fox, began his exec career at Paramount Pictures.
