“Jeff has excellent relationships with young, talented filmmakers and is completely immersed in the comicbook and videogame communities,” Young said.

Fox joins the studio from DreamWorks, where he served as VP of development, a position he held since 2004. Prior to that he’d worked as a creative executive since 2002.

“John has an expertise with big, all-audience films and his sensibility is perfectly in line with the movies that we make here,” Watts said.
