Feature producer Tucker Tooley has joined financing/production entity Relativity Media as head of creative operations.
Tooley will lead development and production for the banner’s Single Picture Business and oversee expansion of its production team.
“Our business model has expanded over the last year in such a way that it was important to have a thoughtful, creative producer on staff to support our rapid growth into development and physical production,” Relativity topper Ryan Kavanaugh said.
Tooley and Kavanaugh will work on “A Perfect Getaway,” “3:10 to Yuma,” “Middle Kingdom,” “The Bank Job,” “Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse,” “The Untouchables: Capone Rising,” “Mary Queen of Scots,” “Brothers,” “Conquistador” and “Tunnels.”
Relativity finances and/or produces nearly 20 pics a year and recently began a five-year production financing deal with Sony.
Upcoming projects under the Tooley Prods. banner include “We’re the Millers” for New Line; “A Perfect Getaway,” to be released next year by Fox; and Peter Iliff’s “Loaded” for the Yari Film Group.
